Thoughts? If you have any suggestions please let me know. Whether if the 680 sli is worth it or if the triple monitor setup is a good idea. Im open to alternatives that might make this cheaper. Or let me know if I am missing anything that Ill need

    How late in summer? Later today nVidia is expected to make some announcements, and of course prices and availability of items will change even in the next month. Might be better to post this closer to your actual purchase time.

    As far as things you forgot, the only thing I notice missing is a wireless LAN card - presuming you don't have one you are planning to reuse. Similarly wireless keyboard and mouse.

    FWIW...

    Im planning on ordering maybe early to mid august. Im pretty sure NVidia is releasing the 690 correct? if that's the case if you think a 690 will work better than sli 680 on a triple monitor then im all for it. And thanks for reminding me of the lan card
