850 would be fine for tri-SLI. Your PSU IS overkill, though
Not sure if you need that mobo... seems overpriced. But okay.
For your RAM, do you know if you really want HyperX? Meaning, do you know what the change is?
PSU: Definitely overkill. You'd be better off with an 850, as GI_JONES said.
Sound card: ARE YOU SURE???? A lot of people make the mistake of buying a sound card. Do you need one? Meaning... are you an audiophile? If you don't know what that word means, you aren't one and you don't need the sound card. Your motherboard has integrated sound that is actually very good. The differences are so small, you wouldn't be able to tell unless you were in almost professional music listening (composing, DJ, etc.)
The reason I went with the 1050 psu is because the display picture on their website was orange and only turned green when I hit 1050. So 850 is enough for SLI then? I'll adjust that.
I read that I should go with Kingston over Corsair and major brand however, correct me if I am wrong. I do not know what Hyper X is or the change...Would this be good for my gaming or not?
As for the mobo, the next step down would be the CrossFireX/SLI] ASUS P8Z77-V LK Intel Z77 Chipset DDR3 ATX Mainboard w/ IRST, Lucid Virtu MVP, 7.1 HD Audio, GbLAN, 3x PCIe x16 (2 Gen3, 1 Gen2), 2 PCie x1 & 2 PCI.
Is this more than enough to run SLI?
For the sound card, I thought by getting a better sound card to go with my new speakers it would create a better atmosphere when I game. Would this be the case?
an onboard audio chip is fine for gaming. honestly that sound card will benefit in headphones but if your using speakers, it isn't doing to be *that* noticeable. but since its only a few bucks, no harm in getting it.
the GTX 670s do NOT draw that much power! they max out @ 164 watts each. a set up with a single 670 set up will run UNDER 300 watts a SLI will run under 550 watts.
but since you have 2 and each need two 6 pin pci power connectors, you do not NEED more than a 650 watt PSU. you can go WAY DOWN on that PSU. you won't be able to run TRI-SLI with that motherboard, well you can but at a slight performance loss with the PCIe 2.0 x16 (x4 mode, black).
save yourself a few bucks, you're probably paying too much to have them put it together anyhow . . no offense.
the rest looks great, happy gaming.
Another reply questioned my ram choice. I selected kingston hyperx, is this what I want or should I go with Crosair?
Also, for now I have selected 20% OC, would I be ok to go to 30%?
I heard that the Ivy Bridge may have some trouble with overheating and it was suggested to stick with 20% (or 25% but they dont offer that option).
Final question, I heard this term "micro stuttering" thrown around with having a sli setup.
Looking at my build, is this something I should be concerned with?
as far as Oc'ing a IB cpu, it isn't about how much speed but how much voltage it takes to get there. heat doesn't get to be an issue until you go past 1.05 volts to up the OC. i would suggest just going for the minimum they offer then if you want to change it, you have an excuse to do a little more research to play around with things.
you put it very appropriately by saying, "this term "micro stuttering" thrown around". i haven't had a SLI set up so i really can't tell you but it seems that it gets mentioned more often than not when folks are talking out their arse. not saying it doesn't happen in some instances but i just don't think it happens as much as some folks believe.
