Fill this out so we can help you more-

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.

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.

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.
