Original post:

Approximate Purchase Date: within the next month

Budget Range: $2000

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, Streaming, Video encoding/editing, multimedia

Parts Not Required: mouse, keyboard, os, speakers

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Newegg

Country: US

Parts Preferences: N/A

Overclocking: Yes (in the future but no OC experience)

SLI or Crossfire: Yes (in the future)

Additional Comments: I also need a keyboard/mouse (not to be included in the overall price). Looking for suggestions on my choice at the end of the post.

ASUS VG236HE Black 23" 120Hz 2ms
(Looking for 120hz - Don't care for the 3D feature)

Intel Core i7-2600K Sandy Bridge 3.4GHz
(i7 for video editing/photoshop/3dsmax/ect)

SAPPHIRE 21197-00-40G Radeon HD 7970
(Prefer over the new released 7950)

ASUS P8Z68-V PRO/GEN3 LGA 1155 Intel Z68
(Upgraded to Pro version)

(Upgraded from the 212 EVO)

(Prefer Full Tower. I had this case before and enjoyed it)

CORSAIR Professional Series HX750
(Will upgrade in the future when I decide to crossfire. But for single GPU will this be suitable)

Crucial M4 CT128M4SSD2 128GB
(This was my budget/quality choice)

Seagate Barracuda ST31000524AS 1TB 7200
(Would prefer a cheaper HDD 500gb - 1TB, 7200, 32mb - I plan on getting a 2TB later but for the initial build I won't need a lot of space)

CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB)
(I will upgrade to 16GB in the future)


Subtotal: $2,154.89


As for the keyboard I am looking for a Backlit Cherry MX Brown (Will be my first mechanical keyboard).
XArmor U9BL-S ($149.95)
Ducky Shine DK9008S ($146.00)
Razer BlackWidow Stealth ($139.99)
Anyone have experience with these keyboards? Or have any other suggestions with the above criteria? I may order the keyboard first to use the laptop.

As for the mouse I am really unsure.

Your first 3 links are not working as for the rest seems really solid although if your waiting a month anyway might I suggest waiting to see how the competition is before you jump in bed with crossfire because it may drop significantly in price.

Fixed the links, all links working now. I could be buying within the week to a month+. But I will be watching for future updates/releases and change accordingly.
