Alright so I've been reading these forums a fair bit, and from what I've gleaned from the topics I've managed to put together a build I perceive to be decent. Now it is up to you (the people of toms hardware) to approve it.
I hope that link works. The i7 stays, regardless if I don't need it. I'm not interested in SLI at the moment, at least not until I get a tri monitor display.
My concerns were with the mother board, should I go with the sabertooth or the Asus Ramage extreme...? I don't know anything about mother boards.
Also, although it may not be listed, I did plan on getting the EVGA GTX 670 FTW model.
Thank you for your time. I'd like to stay relatively close to 2000 but going a tad over is fine. The two SSDs are for a boot drive and games. The price difference between the 64GB and the 124 were so small I decided to go with the 124 for the boot drive, yes.
