    I don't have any speakers, but I do have a pair of Turtle Beach P11's
  3. Everything looks good from this end I would reduce the RAM to 8GB no reason to have 16GB for gaming

    I would bump up the PSU to 750W so that you can have SLI in the future
    if not
    take it down to 550W and get a 670 or 7950
  4. Is the difference between a 670 and a 660 ti that great? If I wanted to get more monitors could I do surround off of one card and still get decent frames or would it be too much?
  5. Well for triple monitor, you'll need at least a 670 gtx, but it's recommended two 670 gtx(getting another latter on).
    You have a mobo and psu for two 670 gtx.
