Looking for some input on this new system. I plan to run four monitors for business applications and some photoshop. What do you guys think ? Will this be sufficient. I will not be gaming .

Any increase in RAM ? Vid cards alright ? Mobo alright ? 750W enough power?

Also - this is my first computer I will be putting together - are all the necessary cables included with each of these parts ?

Thank you

Damn, 750W would power two such systems. You'll be fine with 400W. I'd recommend the ASRock Z68 Extreme3 Gen3 motherboard though, it's the best value for money. You wouldn't need a discrete GPU at all with a Z68 board.

Actually since you're not gaming I shouldn't even recommend the Extreme3, just get the cheapest Z68 you can ;)

Yes, because they feature video output on the motherboard. You can drop the GPU and get a bigger SSD for the money.

Oh, now I see you wanted four monitors. That won't be possible with integrated graphics, sorry.

DUAL 6750s? Is this correct? or a typo?

There is no need to crossfire for your needs. A single 6750 can run you business applications and photoshop just fine.

I'd go with the motherboard in your last post. No need for such a high end mobo (the one in your op)

EDIT: And definitely get a cheaper PSU. Like FinneousPJ said, 750 is overkill

I think you might be able to run 3 monitors of a single card and a fourth off the IGP if you use a Z68 board, I'm not 100% though. I'm sure someone here knows.

found out i can use the 2 video ports on the mobo on the z68 at the same time as the 2 on ONE vid card. so only one vid card needed . decided to get to a 6850
