    Why would the amount of memory affect the longevity of the video card?

    Well you said you want it to be semi future proof and personally I believe in the next few years you will start seeing more games take advantage of more than 2gb VRAM.

    Understandable too bad it puts me out of my price range.

    The only thing I can think that you don't need is a 850w power supply even if you were to sli 670s, 750w is enough and if you were to get a 680ftw a 600 or 650 would be enough.
  8. How much are you OCing?

    How does the build look other than the too powerful PSU and the not too future proof GPU?

    As far as I can go while remaining cool. Not too sure on how high I can go because of the heat problems related to the new ivy bridge processors.
  10. No reason to go as high as possible. 4.2 GHz is the same as 4.5 GHz SB.

    The build looks really good, I like that you chose 16gb ram because programs like udk which I assume you'll be using in game design, really take advantage of the extra ram.
