my CPU is a Intel Core i5-3570K
my tower is Corsair Carbide Series 400R
my power supply is CORSAIR HX Series HX850 850W
my ram is 2 orders of CORSAIR Vengeance LP 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 ( 32gb total )

Do you know that Next-Gen cards are about 6 Months away?
So get those instead of GTX 680 SLI.

I would suggest you a single GTX 670.
And then get a better Card when Next-Gen Cards release.

A GTX670 is near performer of GTX 680.
GTX 680 isn't worth $100 over 670. Its just 5% faster.

Why on earth do you need 32GB RAM?

Mobo is expensive. Take a intel xeon 1230V2 prosessor.

B75 or H77 mobo. Single gpu is better. When one card do no longer work fast enough take new one and it works fine.


Noob12, why do you keep popping up in threads telling people to get xeons? They're not a good recommendation. They require ECC Ram to work properly which is more expensive, they don't have unlocked multipliers so cant be OC'd, they are generally optimized for server workloads, don't come with a cooler (not that big a deal) and not supported by all mobo's.
