3. G.SKILL Ripjaws X + Fan Series 16GB (4 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2200$600 Way overpriced You dont need the fans unless you plan on overclocking these things a ton.

5. Silverstone TJ11 $660 Overprices get the Haf-X case for a third the cost considered to be one of the best cases on the market atm.

6. Corsair Professional Gold AX1200$280 Way overkill for PSU even for 2 590

14. 2* Patriot Wildfire PW240GS25SSDR 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) $1000 Not sure why you need 2 Running these in raid seems pointless Just get one for your main games and OS and buy a 1T drive for everything else.

22. APC BR1500G 1500 VA 865 Watt 10 Outlets Power Saving Back-UPS RS 1500 191 If you go with your 1200 W PSU this wont cut it you need something that can cover nearly 1500 watt of draw. Another reason to cut back on the PSU



On a side note your computer is going to be really loud with fan noise because radiator systems need high airflow to keep the liquid cool, but im not a liquid cooling guro by any means.

I'd stick with the 1200W PSU IMHO. A 900W+ PSU is recommended for 2x580s, and 590s are almost double the power draw. Remember that 1200W will give you a good level of headroom between what you're drawing from the PSU and the maximum wattage the PSU can provide, which will in turn give your PSU an easier and longer life.

As for the liquid cooling, I'd head over to the watercooling section and post your prospective loop materials (blocks, pumps, rads, etc and what you intend to cool). We can help you better over there without bogging down this thread.
