  2. it would make more sense if you asked about what system you are building. just telling you which CPU to get doesnt mean that you are going to build a great system
  3. I would stay away from OCZ products as although they make very fast SSDs, they aren't very reliable and the company is sinking as we speak. I would go with Samsung or Crucial. You don't list your monitor resolution, but unless you are playing on 3 1080p LCDs, you won't need that gpu set up. I never recommend SLI or Crossfire cuz they have several issues anyway. If you aren't gaming on a tri LCD setup, go with the fastest single card you can get, a 7970 GHZ or 680gtx.

    Noted, thanks.
    BTW, which CPU do you recommend?
  5. i really can't see * benefiting* from anything more than a 3570K as far as cost/performance.

    Which mother board is better? ASUS or Gigabyte?
  7. ^
    Gonna need a bit more info than that. Like two specific motherboards to compare.
  8. Well, as a passing note, all of them are overkill for a dual Crossfire/SLI system. All of them will adequately support up to quad.

    The ASUS P8Z77-Pro is out because its easily the most expensive and less SATA ports than the others.

    To be honest, at this price point they should all be good for overclocking. You could literally pick from the remaining boards based on their colour and not make a wrong decision.
    Would personally go with the ASUS Maximus. Has a very long feature set, inbuilt Wifi and Bluetooth, 9 SATA ports (6 of them SATAIII) and has one of the better slot spacing's of all of them. And the red colour scheme would suit my build.

    Again, could pick any of them and not make a bad decision.
