So, im building an Eyefinity setup.

This is what i have come up with, i would appreciate any help regarding Eyefinity.


Motherboard: ASUS Sabertooth P67, Socket-1155 ATX, P67, DDR3, 2xPCIe(2.0)x16, CFX& SLI, SATA 6Gb/s, USB 3.0, FW, BT, EFI
Cpu: Intel Core™ i7 Quad Processor i7-2600K 3,4GHz, Socket LGA1155, 8MB, Boxed
ram: Corsair Vengeance™ DDR3 1600MHz 8GB CL9 Kit w/2x 4GB XMS3 modules, CL9-9-9-24, 1.5V, Vengeance Heatspreader, 240 pin
ram-cooling fan: Kingston HyperX Cooling Fan dual 60mm fans, supports up to 6 Memory Modules in a Motherboard Array
pcu: Chieftec Nitro Series BPS-1200 1200W PSU ATX 12V V2.3, 80 Plus Bronze, Modular, 6x 6+2pin PCIe, 10x SATA, 140mm fan
gpu: 2x XFX Radeon HD 6950 2GB GDDR5 "Dual Fan" PCI-Express 2.1, 2xDVI, HDMI, 2xmini-DisplayPort, 800MHz
Case/cpu cooling: Thermaltake Level 10 GT LCS Big Tower Fans: 1x 200mm Front, 1x 140mm Back side, ATX, m/eATX, built in liquidcooling

Eyefinity screen settup: 3xBenQ 24'' LCD G2420HD + Adapters

Main Questions:
- is the pcu on 1200w overkill? maby a 850w 80 plus silver is better?
- I've heard alot of complains on the Sabertooth P67 Motherboard, anyone familiar? // other motherboard socket-1155 suggestions?
- Id like to get this build cheaper, I live in Norway and this build equals 4000,- dollars.

i would love to hear all opinions and suggestions to benchmark this setup and price.

Overclocking ? - Always.

all looks good but i would seriously consider getting monitors that have display port on them.
or keep 2 of the G2420HD's and get a simmular model that has display port.

the whole process gets 10x easier when you have atleast 1 display port monitor.

1200w is definatly a heap,
