System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, Light Photoshop
Parts Not Required: Video Card (I have a GTX 560 Ti Gigabyte Windforce 1gb) keyboard, mouse, monitor.
Preferred Website(s) for Parts: newegg
SLI or Crossfire: I have a gtx 560 ti... but looking to sli in the future. not an immediate need.
Monitor Resolution: 1920 x 1080.
Additional Comments: Not too particular about the motherboard. Just want one to fit 2 slis at x16 speed. (correct me if im wrong) i just want one that supports overclocking (want to overclock the i5-2500k). I really like the haf 922! although my pc knowledge is pretty outdated... built my last pc 3 years ago. Need decent cooling, liquid or air doesn't matter. Really happy with my liquid cooling though, not sure if air is better.
