Hi Guys I need some help on finalizing my Gaming PC

Approximate Purchase Date: Christmas

Budget Range: £700 with extra updates e.g more ram, ssd and another GPU for Sli/Crossfire

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Playing games like ARMA 2&3, Crysis 1&2

Parts Not Required: Monitor, HDD, Keyboard, Mouse, Speaker

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Any English websites, preferably

Country of Origin: England

Parts Preferences: by brand or type: No prefence

Overclocking: Yes

SLI or Crossfire: Yes, eventually

Monitor Resolution: 1680x1050, then in the future 1980x1050

So far I have come up with this:

Lian Li Pc-K62B

I5 2500K

Corsair A50 CPU Cooler Would maybe like to upgrade to a water cooler.

Corsair TX750W PSU Would this be enough to power my system and then with two GPU's a watercooler and the extra 8GB of ram?

Corsair Vengance Red 8GB (2x4gb) Would like to get another set to upgrade to 16GB evantually.

Asus P8P67 Pro

MSI GTX 560 TI HAWK 1024MB Will be getting a second card for sli eventually.

Basically I need your guys knowledge to help me make any changes to this PC build, mainly I need advice on the GPU whether I should get that one or a different GPU also if you could advise me on a water cooler that would be easy for me to install as this is my first build, thanks in advance

Looks ok, 750W is plenty of power for GTX 560Ti SLI. As for the water cooling, the Corsair H50 would be easy to install.

when are you actually going to need 16gb...most games work fine on 4gb right now, and it will probably take a while for them to get up to 8gb.
