    First thoughts on build-

    -The MSI Big Bang is overkill and overpriced.
    -You need quad channel ram for X79 motherboards.
    -10k hdd's are overpriced and not worth it. Just get a larger ssd and a slower rpm storage drive.
    -1000w psu is overkill for 2 680's. A 850w PSU will run them with no problems.
  3. Im looking at dropping a good amount of money so the money is not an issue. But what kind of memory do you suggest for this motherboard? I want fast and quality; price isnt really the issue just want a quality build around this motherboard.
  4. Do you have a resolution that you want to play at? Do you know what Nvidia Surround is? If so are you interested in it?
    And can you fill out the link I pasted above. It really helps me to help you.
