Total $ 1,892

1. Check the case reviews at benchmarkreviews.com .... 500R has great price / performance ratio
2. If not doing heavy overcloking of both CPU and twin GPU's, drop to a TX750 or XFX Core Edition 750. Could also drop MoBo to the Asus P8Z77 - Pro
3. Great OC'ing board w/ 5 year warranty
4. No need for HT in gaming
5. It's the best cooler around, prettier than the Noc and has 5 year warranty. Drop to Hyper 612 PWM to save $30
6. TIM matches AS5's performance w/o AS5's curing problems
7. RAM is 1.35 which lowers heat load on hot IB CPU's
8. No other card ever got a 10.0 rating http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/ASUS/GeForce_GTX_670...
9. Fastest 7200 rpm drive http://benchmarkreviews.com/index.php?option=com_conten...
10. Tier 1 SSD w/ premium toshiba toggle mode extended life flash and $0.83 per GB proce
11. Went with Blue Ray so ya cud watch movies.
12. PSU sized for 2nd GFX card at later date

If ya cant get the TOP version, this GFX card is exactly the same other than the fact that the TOP uses specially binned chips....something that over time will become unnecessary.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Asus 670 TOP - 10.0 rating
http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/ASUS/GeForce_GTX_670...

Great site to pick coolers....if you are using an LGA 775 or AMD K8 CPU.....those are not used much nowadays tho.

Quote:
FrostyTech's Mk.II Platform delivers a 150W and 85W heat load to socket 775 compatible Intel Pentium 4/D/Extreme Edition, Celeron, Core 2 Duo & Core 2 Quad class heatsinks


I used to use that site too but they gotta get in the modern world, heat signatures vary substantially and the top coolers get shuffled switching even between the1366 and 1155 platforms ....benchmarkreviews demonstrates thus shuffling in many of their reviews.

Way too much overkill MOBO, may as well save money on mobo and get a 3930k

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...


Replace ASUS VW246H Glossy Black 24 with a CATLEAP Yamakasi from Korea.
27 inch and 2560x1440 resolution
or
AURIA EQ276W 27" IPS LED Monitor from Micro Center for about 400 + $37 tax.

Get 2 GTX 670's in SLI if you really want to spend 3000.
