Time to replace the old PC. Want a high end machine for photo and video editing but also one that serves as a game computer for the family/son for among others BF3 that looks decent and is a quiet performer too. So far always bought of teh rack dells and for this one my son was looking at a Alienware aurora but too wild for my taste. Wa looking at an Apple but looks like that will be a problem for gaming so... now considering a self build option that I can tayor to my needs, will however be my first new build so should not be too complex I guesss...
So.. in short looking for a
- high end system for video/photo edit and gaming
- decent/sharp looking case
- low noise delivery
appreciate your thoughts/help on this

This build would certainly allow you to add another GTX 580. We may have to tweak the PSU, but nothing major. The most worrying thing would be the heat. You'd probably have to opt for a full size case vs a microATX one.
If you want to try dual cards, we could get 2 GTX 560 Ti's in there no problem. Cost would stay the same. It's really gonna come down to if you want to mess with dual cards (I would, but I'm a techie ) or not.
And yeah, I tried to get you the best performance I could, while staying within a reasonable budget. This build uses a lot of top dollar parts, and we could cut the price down by using cheaper parts.
Alright, if you can stomach the price, go for it. Before you settle on that case though, be sure to look at Fractal Designs, Antec Performance 1 series, and the Antec Sonata series. All are very capable cases at a cheaper price tag. I'm not trying to dissuade you from getting the Lian-Li (well, maybe a little bit ) I'm just throwing some options around.
