Well, i suggest you read this: http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/555?vs=598

As you can see there is practically no difference between the GTX 680 and the GTX 670 (only the 100$ difference :lol: ) so if I'd were you i would the the GTX 670 (Asus DC II version or Gigabyte WF Edition)

but if really want to buy the GTX 680 then I'd buy the DC2O-2GD5 GTX 680, Twin Frozr 2GD5/OC or the GIGABYTE GV-N680OC-2GD, any of those cards will allow you to do a high overclock and keep your GPU cool.

i recommend msi lightning gtx 680 as it is $600 and has voltage unlocked, it is the top of the line gtx680 and is far better than a 670. Ofcourse an overclocked gtx670 is the same as a stock gtx680......but wait until you overclock your msi lightning to 1350/8000 ;)

and i wana buy thos rams http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... are they good? and i7 3770k or i5 3570k?


*That ram kit is good but the heatskins are too tall, that will force you to stick with the stock cooler or buy a closed loop watercooler (120$ for the Thermaltake water pro extreme all in one or 100$ for the H100 <--- those two are the only ones that worh it)

*Do you really need 16GB of ram? are yo going to do a lot of video editing/gaming/run spreadsheets/opening tabs like crazy in chrome??

*The i7 is better for video editing/decoding/trans-coding, photoshop, CSx suites, etc... and the i5 is better for gaming (they both perform EXATCLY THE SAME in gaming)

Well, either buy a few extra quality fans for the H100 or buy the thermaltake liquid cooler, the H100 doesnt perform that well over other air coolers.

I can guarantee You wont be using more than 8gb for gaming. I reckon you would only be using 4gb to be honest.. as for h100 stock fans are fantastic just not for quietness. If you want to get afternarket fans for it go for it and put in push/pull config. It has the same performance as air cooling but is smaller hence leaving you with more space on the mobo. As for msi lightninggtx680 stable clockspeeds go have a look at the overclock.net owners club. Kthnx.
