Additional Comments: I don't know what I should do about the current situation with hard drives, so I don't know when I'll be buying these parts. My build hasn't been updated for the new hard drive prices, so I might have to downgrade my components to get it within my budget
I don't know really know what to do about the situation in Thailand, because I heard it'll take a year for prices to go down. Perhaps I should get an SSD? Whatever it is, I'll almost certainly have to spend more on it, and that means bye-bye GTX 580 Also, I picked a P67 motherboard because I'm not sure if I need any of the features that Z68 brings. Any suggestions are welcome!
GFX - Consider the fact that twin 900MHz 560 TI's give ya 40% more fps than the single 580 for s much as $70 less. Yes, there is the argument that adding a 2nd 580 would be better than that ......but only 10% better than that.
Thanks for all the suggestions! First of all, one clarification - I'm not going to SLI GTX 580's, I'm either going to have one 580 or SLI/Crossfire a cheaper card. I would also prefer a modular PSU.
I'll definitely switch to the Corsair 500R if it stays at the price.
Now for the tough part... I see that my board supports Crossfire, but not SLI. I can either use my existing board and Crossfire two AMD cards, or I can SLI two Nvidia's and get a new mobo. Which choice do you think I should take? What motherboard should I upgrade to, and what cards to Crossfire/SLI? And, most importantly, what PSU should I get if I have a multi-GPU setup (I would need more than 650W, right?)
