  1. bump any ideas?
  2. I would get this ssd
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820147163
    This mobo(the motheboard you have selected won't fit in the case)
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813130646
    I don't trust 560ti sli, mine didn't work, I would get two 7850's
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814129230
    go with this psu, that other one is way overkill, you wouldn't need that unless you had two 480's
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817553007
    I don't think that dvd drive is necessary
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16827100067
    I would get a hard drive also
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822148840
    if you want a full tower I would get this
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811517006
    I would get these monitors instead
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824236103
    I would get this keyboard, I don't see why you need a better one
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16823162014
    Also if this is a gaming rig I would get an i5 3570k
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819116504
    Also consider if you really need ultimate
    http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows7/products/compare
    that compares the three versions. Sorry if you feel like I tore your build apart but this computer will game a little better, and is FAR cheaper.
    Also this ram looks about that same
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820104315
    And also consider if you think an air cooler would make more sense. This build should be at least $400 cheaper, but I wasn't keeping track.
  3. I already have everything built, and yes I was moving up from a 480, was just looking at doing some upgrades. And the IV Extreme wont fit in the Cosmos II? Its an EATX board which the cosmos says it will support
  4. Well If it says it will then, yes. I just saw atx case and thought it wouldn't. Well if you have everything already, what are you looking for specifically?
  5. Didnt' know if it be worth it to go to something like GTX 670/680 and try to sell off the 560 TI, worth it to try and go to 16 or 32 ram, I do play video games ie. battlefield 3 torchlight, swtor, but I am also adobe certified and use it for my adobe collection as well
  6. I would just stay with two 560tis for now, you will get 300 max for the two of them.
