Hi everyone I am looking to build a quality gaming/entertainment PC with 3 monitors. This will be my first PC project, and I really dont have alot of knowledge on the parts and specs. So any suggestions on the build would help alot. My budget on the PC alone is $2000, games that I play on the PC are SC2, Shogun Total War 2, CS Source. I am looking for good + smooth graphics and not too noisy. Please include links and prices to all parts. Thank you
Case I'll use is Thermaltake Lvl 10 GT
And I also need your suggestion on the monitors as well, looking for 19-23"

Here: http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/321541-31-first-build

Go to that link. It's my build, it is pretty solid. You can use that as a base. The build is $1500
From my build tell me what you want to improve change or remove and I'll help you with specs/description and compatibility and so on.

For graphics I suggest two GTX 570 in SLI, almsot beats two 580's in SLI.
As for monitors how about this: http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias...

I found this helpful as a guideline. When you look at different parts, you want to spend the money where it matters most - i.e. no point in having top of the line motherboard if you don't plan to use any of the features, or use a i3 processor that doesn't overclock. That kind of stuff:
