I bought this config last night.

HDD2: 1TB Western Digital Caviar Black SATA-III 6.0Gb/s 7200 RPM HDD

MEMORY: 8GB (4GBx2) DDR3/1866MHz Dual Channel Memory (Patriot Viper III [Free upgrade from 1600MHz Major Brand])

MOTHERBOARD: GIGABYTE GA-Z77X-D3H Intel Z77 Chipset

OS: Microsoft(R) Windows 8 (64-bit Edition)

POWERSUPPLY: 750 Watts - Corsair CMPSU-750TXV2 80 Plus Power Supply

VIDEO: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 670 2GB 16X PCIe 3.0 Video Card (EVGA Superclocked - free upgrade)

Questions:
1. I would like to play Planetside 2 on ultra or close to it. I've heard it is CPU intensive. Will the i5-3570K provide plenty of juice?

2. I may add another 670 in SLI down the road. Would the GIGABYTE GA-Z77X-D3H MOBO and the TX750 PSU permit that?

3. What do you think of the build in general?

Thanks! :)

The build is all compatible GIGABYTE GA-Z77X-UD3H is a solid budget board yes you will be able to run sli 670 with it.As for power supply nVidia itself recommend 500W for a single 670.

For testing conducted for SLI 670, the resulting system consumption for SLI is 433W of which 293W are attributed to the gpu cards.

All points out to 750W being more than enough.

Awesome. Thanks for the help. Any thoughts on the build's capabilities re Planetside 2 or on the build in general? Thanks!

It's a nice mid high end gaming build you should be able to play most games on ultra 50-60fps @1920 x 1080

Thanks for the reply. That puts me at ease. Planetside 2 is unplayable on low on my current computer.
