Hey guys i am kinda new to gaming tech, but very technically minded.

looking at some high end GPU's, memory, motherboards and CPU's

A fully liquid cooled system
(I hate noise)

- ASUS Maximus IV Extreme -Z

- I7 2600 i dont know what clcok ill get yet.

- Corsair dominator GT 16 GB DDR3 2133 MHz dominator GT

2x gtx 570 1.2gb waterblocked $940

OR

2x gtx 580 3gb waterblocked $1360

will my system bottle necking the 580's?


ALL to run a Dell UltraSharp U3011 30"(2560x1600)
maybe a 50"-60" at some stage. no idea about specs

That memory what you choosed is quad channel. You need dual channel memory and if you need 16GB RAM buy 2 X 8GB and you can upgrade in the future to 32GB RAM. You need something like this CORSAIR Vengeance 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Your CPU will not bottleneck the GPU'S.

I saw it advertised with 4 sticks mem in it.
The I haven't read on it cos I thought it was ok.

It's dual memory, just 2xdual channel for the lga2011 board

Thanks for letting me know.

Only 2 dim slots per channel?
2 channels on the board?

Lame!
I am not rly after 16gb. But it looked like it was the way to go.
