  1. bump any ideas?
  2. I would get this ssd
    This mobo(the motheboard you have selected won't fit in the case)
    I don't trust 560ti sli, mine didn't work, I would get two 7850's
    go with this psu, that other one is way overkill, you wouldn't need that unless you had two 480's
    I don't think that dvd drive is necessary
    I would get a hard drive also
    if you want a full tower I would get this
    I would get these monitors instead
    I would get this keyboard, I don't see why you need a better one
    Also if this is a gaming rig I would get an i5 3570k
    Also consider if you really need ultimate
    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
    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.
