  1. I would argue there is no need for a full tower case unless you are running crossfire 6990's :P try this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811119197

    Other thing is, does anyone need 16gb of ram? lol
    But yeah, looks like a good build!
    also if gaming is that low on your list, you could save on the video card and go with a 6850 and then crossfire later if you really need the extra power. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814125353
    yeah! hope thats helpful :P
  2. CFing a 68xx results in poor scaling and microstuttering. I would get one GTX 560ti or Radeon 6950.
