  1. That PSU is very overkill. You would only need 1200 watts, say for a 3-Way GTX 580 setup... you would save yourself some cash towards other upgrades by stepping your PSU down to 900 or 950 watts. Of course, as you said, it is your money.
  2. I might do 3-way later on when the going gets tough for the 2; I think I read somewhere that it increases FPS by about 35-45%

    should I be future proof or put the money elsewhere?
  3. Talk to us in 2 months .. there are new Video Cards coming out so no point choosing components now if u buy in 2 months
  4. Since you are canadian, post your question also on hardware canucks.
    Anyway, using Ncix.com, I came up with this:

    EVGA GeForce GTX 590 Classified 630MHZ 3072MB 3456MHZ GDDR5 3XDVI Mini DisplayPort PCI-E Video Card x2
    $749.99 x2=$1,499.98

    Batman Arkham City (PC Game) Coupon for Digital Download *NVIDIA Promo Only*

    YOUR TOTAL $2,468.80
  5. That total makes no sense. I added them up myself and got 3,218.79
    and that would be great... but there's no Monitor or Hard Drive.
    When I add in the Monitor and Hard Drive, I got close to $4000. That's out of my price range, not to mention, cheaper on newegg.ca
  6. CPU
    $174 after MIR
    $79 quality low profile RAM
    GPU X2
    $ 680
    Case $110

    Monitor 747

    keyboard and mouse $100
    Buy locally so you know you like it.

    Windows $110

    Cooler $60
    There are a lot of options out there. This one is a well tested good performing part.
    Your CPU will run out of headroom before this cooler will allow heat issues.

    I am not sure if you want headphones or speakers. There is another 260 to choose what you want. This is something else I ask you to buy locally to confirm it sound how you want.

    $ 2760 with no Speakers. New AMD cards are coming out very soon and may be worth waiting for.
    Also, I hear the Force GT is the fastest SF SSD right now, is that true?
