System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, Streaming in 1080p, some programming (computer science student), viewing movies, etc.
Are you buying a monitor: No, I have a 2560x1440 Monitor and a 1920x1080 monitor.
Do you need to buy OS: No
Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Newegg.
Location: City, State/Region, Country - I'll be ordering online and building myself.
Parts Preferences: Intel/Nvidia. No AMD whatsoever.
SLI or Crossfire: Yes (considering it)
Your Monitor Resolution: 2560x1440 and 1920x1080 in some instances.
Additional Comments: This will be my first time building so I want to have a nice case with good cable management, airflow, easy to use, etc. Also I want a system capable of pulling 60 constant fps on ultra settings. I'm very picky about fps and I want silky smooth 60 fps if possible.
And Most Importantly, Why Are You Upgrading: I want a great gaming computer capable of high fps in even the most demanding games.

So here is my current build. Before hand I just want to point out that I've considered both the sli solution with two gtx 670's and the single card solution of a single gtx 680. However, based on my research the gtx 680 doesn't seem worth the 100 dollar extra price tag over the 670. I am leaning more toward the dual 670s. Also I was debating on going with the i7 cpu solution however I don't think I will use the extra threads (I don't think xsplit makes use of these) and it did not seem logical to pay 100+ extra pricetag for something i wouldnt use.
looks pretty good so far, don't forget the thermal paste/grease. you may want a video card option with more vram. high resolution eats vram like a mofo, so the more the better. remember that xfire/sli does not add the vram together to make more ...
