Additional Comments: Will be mostly playing video games like TES V: Skyrim, Diablo 3, Final Fantasy XIV and I have also thought about learning how to make Mods for Skyrim. I would also like to record and upload gameplay videos.
I want a Desktop with plenty of room for future upgrades, I do plan on adding more parts as I learn. I plan on using an external HDD or perhaps an SSD for video games.
(Would I be able to put the GTX 680 in SLI with my current Power supply?)
I would like to know if everything will work together great, with no bottlenecks, and if possible I would also like if you can tell me if the Motherboard has all the necessary plug-ins to handle all the case...... *thinks*.... the case front panel and fan plug-ins.
Suggestions for replacing the parts if one or more of the components is not compatible with the rest of the build would be greatly appreciated.
I believe that is everything, and so....
Thank you kindly ;o
Cpu heatsing: I personally Have Experience with the Dark Knight, I got mine working for 2 months at a simply Overclock on a Sandy Bridge at 4.2, after 2 months it stopped working, changed the fan and stuff and it wouldnt work, Started Rma procces, i was gonna have to wait 3 weeks for the Rma.... its been 3 months already i still dont have it in my hands, So i tought well im gonna have to get one until my dark knight comesback, guess what? I got this one : http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1683...
I have the same temps and im overcloking at 4.5, theres plenty of guides on how to overclock with this heatsink and stress test and stuff, best Bang For your Money i love it.
Everything in your Setup Will Work Fine, I would Do some changes if you could afford a little more money, like Using an SSD as Os Drive, And getting 16gb Ram just for the lols because anything more than 8 its overkill for gaming.
