Hello everyone, with this build I am hoping I would be able to play crysis/bf3/sc2 on ultra settings at 1080p res with great fps and no lag online. Is it possible?

Approximate Purchase Date: This week

Budget Range: $1500, a few hundred more isn't a big deal

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming

Parts Not Required: keyboard, mouse, monitor, speakers, OS

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: newegg.com

Country: Canada

Parts Preferences: Intel and Nvidia

Overclocking: I'm open to it, perhaps sometime in the future

SLI or Crossfire: Yes, for my next upgrade down the road

Monitor Resolution: 1920x1080

A good quality 750W PSU is enough for SLIng that 670 with OC. Get the OCZ ZT 750W or TX750 V2.

That's not a good reason to get WC. The Video card doesn't really need much cooling as they are durable.

The difference between a high-end air cooler and a comparable water cooler is barely a few degrees Celsius.
