  1. I'd drop to the P8P67 Pro, unless ya need the 2nd LAN port....saves $50

    I'd use two 900 Mhz 560 Ti's instead of the single 580.....gives 40% more fps than the 580 for $40-70 less. And if ya thinking about upgrading to a 2nd 580 later on, all it gets ya is 10% mre than the twin 560's

    If ya not gonna OC, then the CPU cooler that comes with the CPU is just fine. If ya change your mind....

    4.4 - 4.5 GHz, Hyper 212 $30

    4.6 - 4.7 GHz, Hyper 612 PWM or Scythe Mugen 3 $50

    4.8 - 5.0+ GHz, Thermalright Silver Arrow $80

    RAM - Corsair low profile Vengeance 8GB DR3-1600 CAS 9 is where Id start .... Mushkin Redline low profile DDR3-1600 CAS 7 or DDR3-1866 CAS 9
  2. Thanks for the quick reply and I just have a few more questions. First I read somewhere that there can be problems connecting the USB 3.0 ports on the motherboard to the front of the case, is this true. Second if I was to use dvi cables to connect the graphic card to the monitor would I get 1080p resolution.

    if i use a gtx580 graphics card then there is only one hdmi port.
  6. Why do you need more than one HDMI port?

    I will be using two monitors so how will I connect the two monitors to the one graphics card
  8. anyone?

  10. I believe there are split adapters that take in two HDMI inputs and output one HDMI.

    so you have a link?
  12. since your cp is the heart of a computer, i would say for 40 dollars you should get the coolermaster hyper 212 evo, i just picked it up for my i7 and its great.
    as for ram i would go with 8gb
