I'd go with this combination instead: Motherboard: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681... PSU: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681...

You just need a good 850w PSU to SLI. I recommend this- http://www.directcanada.com/products/?sku=22170AC7260&v... (I would buy as much of your parts from the website I just linked to because there is free shipping on order more than 50$) The HAF X is over hyped and IMO not as good of a case as the Cooler Master Storm Trooper which is also about 50$ less- http://www.directcanada.com/products/?sku=16950AC2779&v... With the money you saved with those changes get a better CPU cooler- http://www.directcanada.com/products/?sku=11130AC1714&v... Overall it looks great. I love your monitor choice. I want 3 of those myself. Related resources Triple monitor GTX 680 ? - Forum New PC Build ...

Will the one 4gb 680 power the 3 displays fine? mjmjpfaff a b C Monitor July 2, 2012 9:36:35 PM Yes, it should run most games on pretty high settings with decent FPS. g-unit1111 a b C Monitor July 2, 2012 9:41:19 PM tcr6v1 said:Ok so a 850W PSU is fine for 2 680s in SLI? And on a side note... Will the one 4gb 680 power the 3 displays fine? Yes - a single 680 will handle a triple monitor display just fine. 750W will be more than enough to handle SLI as the 680 is one of the most energy efficient GPUs that NVIDIA has ever produced. tcr6v1 July 3, 2012 1:00:04 AM Best answer selected by tcr6v1.
