Hello everyone. From a lot of help from the people on this forum, I have finally built my computer. I settled with SLI 570, since the 680 is out of stock and on back order. The details are below. I was just seeing if there is something totally standard on here that I might have overlooked. For example; I want to make sure it will be able to do wifi with the setup I have now, or if I need to get a card. Or, will my powersupplay have the hook ups to go to 2 cards. Will my motherboard have the bridge for the sli? I did my looking, and I think I found that it does, but more eyes are better to find flaws. (These small details sometimes elude me.) Any help would rock, just like normal. I know its pricey (2k), but I wanted to get the newest motherboard setup so I can upgrade easier in the future.

Thanks for the help!

looks decent to me.

just as a possible option: a pair of 7870s are about the same price with less power usage

I am not a fan of AMD. I kind of want to stay with Geforce. I also switched out my Motherboard and CPU for a z77 Sabertooth, and an i7-3570k. Its not as futureproof, as the x79 motherboards, but its a little cheaper and has all that I need, I think.

Will the 680 work on the z77 sabertooth, if I go that route? Could I just drop a 680 into a z77 sabertooth, i7-3570k system? Would it be pretty similar and save some dough?

Yes it will be find right off the bat. And you also wouldn't need as big of a PSU with a single 680. Unless you were gonna have SLI later.

I just placed my order. Thanks for all the help. I changed my spec a bit. I went wit ha classified 580 3g video card, a z77 sabertooth and 3570k. It was all under $1900, so I am happy. I cut like 300 from my prebuilt one, and it is more powerful. I went with a big PSU so I could add in cards later, and it seems like a good deal for that one. Thank you again for all the help!
