This is my revised build from my previous post. so what do you guys think? any comments suggestions?
I read that I didnt need a sound card but I do need one I have 7.1 speakers and they dont hookup to onboard sound right, I tried it and the sound wasnt right Im not a big fan of onboard sound anyways.
The suggested 3D monitor isnt needed as I will not be using 3D.
I will be using the SSD as a cashing drive to speed up the whole system.

  1. I wanted to ask also
    Is a physics card needed ?
  2. I think the sound card is a waste of money -- onboard sound is quite good nowadays, doubt you'd notice a difference.

    The Spinpoint F3 will perform as well as the 1TB Caviar Black, for $20 cheaper.

    Aside from that, I think you're good. The reviews on the motherboard look dicey, but then again, the reviews for EVERY Z68 motherboard with real SLI support look dicey.

    Nope. (Especially not with 2x overclocked 560 Ti's)
  3. I have left out a few key components. opps ;)
    I forgot the 12* blueray all in one burner ;p 99.
    And a copper cpu fan heatsink 60.
    A logitech G9 gaming mouse 69. its real big and heavy for my big hands.
    I already have a 8 piece 7.1 1000 watt speaker system 600.
    logitech force 3d joystick 79.
    Logitech Momo force racing wheel 100
    That brings it up to around 2900 yikes!
    I have been thinking about going with 3 24in HD monitor setup but that will bring the price up to around 3500. double yikes!! have any of you guys ever seen one? can ya'll give me some feedback on how it works and does it work good enough for HD gaming?
    I find it mildly amusing that these guys spend thousands on HD Video setups but completly forget about HD sound systems. Sound is half of the experience!
    I have the whole house shaking pouring out 1000 watts of pure gaming goodness!
  4. All I can say is wow I got to get me one of these
    More goodness!
