Thanks.

Keep in mind I'm going to use this PC mostly for gaming.

What power supply do you have that you're planning on using?? I don't want you to think you're going to get away with a dell 430 watter lol.
I checked the updated memory for your board and I don't see that particular model number listed.
You might want to try one of these - F3-12800CL7D-8GBRH(XMP), or F3-12800CL8D-8GBECO(XMP), or F3-12800CL9D-8GBRL(XMP). Just to be on the safe side! I like the 7 latencies better but they do cost more.

Looks good. But I'd drop that board for this Asrock Extreme3 Gen3 Z68, you get PCI 3.0, Ivy Bridge support and it's cheaper.

As for everything else, looks good.

I didn't even list my power supply, and I won't. It's not important, it's already decided. I have one.

Screw micro-stuttering, in reality the difference isn't even noticeable. However with the pricing on your 460's you might as well go with 2x560 GTX's or pay a little more for 2x560 Tis.
MSI N560GTX-M2D1GD5 GTX 560 $190 $20 MIR and free game

Gigabyte 560 Ti $220 $20 MIR + Free game

As for a power supply, I recommend at least this for SLI 560
OCZ ZS 750w $100

At first I didn't notice the 460's pricing. BUT DANG at that price you're better of with 560's that perform better, cooler and quieter.

It IS important. A solid PSU is the single most important part. You seem pretty confident that it's good, but you might want to let us know.
(I'm trying to think of secret-agentish situations that would make you unwilling to tell us the model of your PSU - killed a man over it? stole the design and built it yourself in an international case of corporate espionage? - but I haven't come up with one that makes sense.)

WTF? Why won't you list it. If it sucks it wouldn't run 5770 CF. So What is it? Is it because you don't know the specs?

Because I need confirmation on the specs that I'm about to buy, not the ones that I already own.

It's just that if it's some kind of junkbox, you absolutely need to get a new one.

We're asking because you asked us about your build. If we tell you it looks great and you buy all those parts, put it all together and it craps right out on you then you're gonna think we don't have a clue. Not only that but a cheap, underpowered psu could/will cause other components to burn when the psu goes so what's the sense in that? You asked us about your build. Those parts, minus the memory I showed concerns about, will work fine - as long as the other parts you already have are compatible with the ones you're going to buy. Notice we didn't ask you what hdd you have? Is it sata or ide? Course not. But the psu really is one of the most important parts and we would be giving lousy advice not to mention it. Don't want to tell us??? Fine, when you come back later with a new thread about video cards not working in SLI or computer keeps shutting down and restarting we will ask you again and maybe you'll tell us then.

All Z68 boards can use the integrated card in the SB chips. Also it has PCI 3 and Ivy Bridge support as stated. Plus, the board is cheaper and just as good.
October 10, 2011 12:18:49 AM

The integrated graphics can still degrade performance and stability, judging by the H67 chipset. Even with the integrated Intel graphics disabled the H67 boards apparently run their PCIe-x16 slots in x1 mode by default.

This isn't H67; this is Z68. Z68's Quick Sync is actually useful, unlike whatever H67-specific problem you're talking about.

If you don't want to tell us at least GO HERE and do a power supply calculation to make sure you have enough power.

^The number that the PSU has on the front isn't always accurate, let alone reliable.
October 11, 2011 11:53:01 PM

I find it funny how people are still bumping this thread to find out what power supply I have.
I already have the PC, you can *** off now, thanks everyone who wrote something partially useful :)
