TOTAL : $1,465.41 You have a mobo with posibilities to SLI , a power supply what can support SLI , cpu overclocked and everything you want to put on that PC. The case is quiet . The cpu cooler is verry quiet and one of the best. Its dificult to do an pc just from one site because on other site some parts can be with 20-30$ cheaper,and some parts are not available on other site.
