Good Gaming Build?

Hey guys was wondering if you guys could take a look at my build and let me know your opinions on it. I want to order today. A couple notes about it and my plans. In a couple months I want to add two more samsung monitors for surround gaming. I will be adding another GTX 680 as well. Plus that PSU is $30 off promo code right now which works out to $169.99. Its only $20 more than the 850w seasonic so thats why i decided to get that one. well here is what i got. Oh the Gskill ares 8GB memory is free right now with the Motherboard purchase as well.

More about good gaming build
  1. Why on Earth do you need a 1050w psu???

    Even SLI GTX680's only requires a 750w psu. If your doing heavy overclocking and SLI I'd recommend a good 850w.
  2. Unless you're overclocking to 4.5 GHz+, the CPU tdp stays within 200W.
    Pair that with an SLI, somewhere around 250-300W. Adding peripherals, you still don't need a 1000W supply, unless you're going for triple SLI/Crossfire.
  3. OK I will want to OC the GPU and CPU a little. But the seasonic 850w PSU was Only $20 less then the 1050w PSU. Pretty good deal in my book. Ill pay $20 extra. it might be overkill but its a good deal and a excellent PSU
  4. ok so i was looking a maybe going with this one. Its Platinum Cert. and the same $ as the 1050w Gold Cert.

    SeaSonic Platinum Platinum-860 860W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS PLATINUM Certified Full Modular Active ...
  5. It wasn't a good deal, because you will not utilize it.
  6. Platinum is 94%+ efficiency, Gold is 90%+.
    If budget is no constraint, I'd say you can go for it.

    About your graphics, consider 2x 670 SLI. More performance for the price, you'll need it for multi monitor gaming.
