Those are some Great Builds, so what do you think about SLIing the 480 Card i have now or should,
I just wait a little bit longer and upgrade to the new Cards when they come out .

right now your in the middle of intel switch over in the standard gamer cpu from ib to haswel. the problem is hw chips dont use the same mb pins as the sb and ib chips. on the 2011 mb there will be ib cpu out. the ib has a trade off with sb. the ib have a newer memory contoller the nsb so that you can run higher then 1600 speed ram. there also a little bit faster then the sb chips. they also run cooler at stock speeds. the down side is ib dont over clock well. if your going ot over clock then a sb and 2011 mb would be a better. also the 670 it only about 10 percent slower then the 680 but has a better price point. your better off not raiding an ssd right now intill there software and firmware changes you lose trim function on raided ssd. your better off using a larger slower hd or a ssd/hard drive combo drive. if your going to build real hard core gaming system then drop in a good sound card. the onboard are fine but a sb or asus sound card and a good set of speakers or head phones are great.

So the SB CPU with 2011 MB is better for high End Gaming, I Did not know that about Raiding SSDs, on another note how should i set up my Hard Drives . I could do one SSD/HD Comboe and then another SSD/HD combo what do you think of that setup .

looking to have 400-500 GB on the Main Boot Gaming Drive.

i have my set up as boot drive 128g intel 520 and a 500g data drive. (i got the ssd when is was $$$). with an ssd you want to put your main games and os on it. any of your downloads..music...thing that do lots of writes...go on the data drive. ssd have a limit of writes. but not reads. the 2011 chipset with a flash update can run ib when they come out next year. the highest end system right now use e-atx mb and 8-10 core server chips. evga high end mb.

SLIng two gtx480s?? you know those cards are extremely loud, hot and consume a LOT of power and they don't perform very good, a 7870CF would beat a GTX480sli and use about 5/8 the power and run a lot cooler.
