Unless you're looking to overclock right now that is a solid build and doesn't need anything extra for cooling, the standard Intel CPU cooler is plenty for a stock CPU.

U should pick different PSU.

GTX 670 4x SLI = 1200 recommended by manufacture, so u should have 1050Wmin.

"4-Way SLI Ready Graphics Card Graphics" is a quote from the web-store, he isn't using 4 of them in this build. It's like the mobo saying "AMD CrossFireX/NVIDIA SLI W/ HDMI,DVI,DispayPort Dual UEFI BIOS".

Four 670s would be sweet though.

I added the Hyper 212 EVO cooling system and kept the 750w power supply, this way i will be able to add to the system without having to take the system apart.

All in all, i got a great deal on Amazon; I got all the above components plus the cooling fan for $940 out the door (oh yeah, also got a tube of thermal compound). I paid no tax and no shipping (due to being a Prime member) and got $35 cash back from my Discover card.

Can't wait to start building...order should arrive Tuesday. :bounce: 

Thanks for the help. :hello:
