Advice on a new system

Hey, I have just finished the specs for my new computer. I have looked around and think I've got a fairly good build and aren't doing anything stupid but would really appreciate some feedback or advice as id be a fool to spend this much money without people better than me casting an expert eye over it!

Any comments would be very appreciated! thanks a lot!

(to put it into context this computer will be multi-purpose. I want to use it for high end gaming but also development so will need to handle a lot of high end programs and content generators and will need it to be able to virtualize other OS competently. I know that some of the parts are overkill and i could achieve this with slightly lower specs, but i want this to be as future proof as possible, i know better parts will come out but i want it to still be able to run high end games and applications in years to come)

  1. On your GPU's since I think you are wanting to run higher resolution than 1920 x 1200 then you might think about going with a couple of 580's or 590's with 2GB of Vram.

    But if don't think you need those big cards then on the GTX 560 Ti's. look for the 448 core with the 2GB Vram.

    You also might think about adding a SSD of about 120 GB drive so your OPS is on it plus you will be able to use Raid which will speed up your system.

    Also your ram should be faster. Go with the 1600mhz or the 1800mhz. They have one that is faster but I don't remember what it was.

    I have learned a lot since I built mine and I wish I could go back and do a redo. Hey I wish you the best of luck with this ossume system.
