  1. cant find a choice that works for me :)

    Great MoBo / CPU .... RAM OK if it's low profile

    PSU ....not a fan of the OCZ "Stream" series / Don't know the case at all

    SSD is too small....mehtinks it will be cluttered up in 6 months unless you are an astute windows user.
  2. Are you on a budget or is this what you want to get regardless of budget. If there was more budget money then I would try for a better video card , GTX 570 or AMD 6950. A better brand of psu would be good Antec , Corsair or Seasonic come to mind. SSD would be better at 120gb , gives more room for the OS and a game or two. Cpu , motherboard and ram are good. It would be good to know your budget though.
  3. I would say get a bigger SSD or perhaps supplement the SSD with a HDD or perhaps 2 of them in RAID0. Also, get a slightly more reliable PSU, with a higher maximum output. If the PSU doesn't come with 4x 6 pin connectors, it probably wasn't built to give power to two GPU's that require 2x 6 pin connectors each. Also if you want to make your machine a bit more future proof, you might want to invent in a single GPU with a lot of memory.
  4. dont need more then 60gb, only for OS and a few programs like Excel and Word nothing else.
  5. Seen a lot of reviews and my choice for -340€ is 2x iceq 6870 they are almost the same as 6690 and 590, (based on the reviews of 1920x1080 screen)
  6. Ill not rate cause if you want my opinion, you cannot limit me to your choices, I don't like any of them! So, here is my scale!
    On a scale of 1-10 I give it a solid 8, its a pretty nice build. I personally would have went SLI with a couple of 560ti's, imagine that. Simply don't like ATI cards on an Intel build, but thats all personal preference, but then you are asking for our opinions, right? Don't know much about the PSU, but I reckon its decent enough.
    Nothing at all wrong with your pick for your SSD, a lot of folks think you need bigger for an OS drive, but I have a 60gig, and its proven to be plenty big enough.
