Don't get the GTX 690 UNLESS you are gaming on 3 monitors. You simply won't need all that power. Save $500 and get a GTX 680 now, and another 680 in the future when it goes down to $350 or so and you actually need the power. If you're gaming on 3 monitors, by all means get the 690.
Pretty much everything on this system is major overkill for gaming - it'd make a great video editing rig, but there's a lot of stuff on here that you don't really need. A 1500W power supply is major overkill, the 690 won't even use like 1/2 that. Plus triple channel RAM won't work in a quad channel system.
You could build a system for 1/2 of what you'd be spending and still come out ahead. Try this:
I appreciate your responses above. I have had this system below recommended to me as I usually only play games on a Dell U2711 @ 2560X1440. I removed the 690 and put in 2 680's... I'll only buy one until I need the second one I guess.
My question is this system configuration below to offer more preformance and stability than the one mentioned/recommended above?
I value your responses as well as your time.
