So... after hours of researching I came up with this setup. My question for u guys is:

Will this rig crash all of the latest games on ultra settings (meaning 60 fps +), and will it last long?

Is everything compatible with each other?

Is there anything I can change to make it better? My budget is around $2700

I'm not playing on multiple monitors, and I'll be overclocking. Here it goes:

CPU: Intel Core i5-3570K 3.4GHz Quad-Core ($219.99)
CPU Cooler: Corsair H100i 77.0 CFM Liquid ($99.99)
Motherboard: Asus Maximus V Extreme EATX LGA1155 ($369.00)
Memory: Corsair Vengeance 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR3-1866 ($99.99)
SSD: Mushkin Chronos Deluxe 240GB 2.5" SSD ($179.99)
Storage: Seagate Barracuda 2TB 3.5" 7200RPM ($89.99)
GPU: EVGA GeForce GTX 680 4GB ($539.99)
Sound Card: Creative Labs Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium HD ($139.98)
Case: Silverstone RV03B-W ATX Full Tower ($133.20)
PSU: Silverstone 850W ATX12V / EPS12V ($168.98)
Optical Drive: Lite-On iHAS124-04 DVD/CD Writer ($22.98)
Monitor: Asus VW246H 24.0" ($187.49)
OS: Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 (OEM) (64-bit) $89.98
Keyboard: Logitech 920-000914 $74.99

Total: $2416.54

I know there are thousands of experts in this place, all I need is a bright soul to take me out of this darkness and help me. :S Thanks to everyone! :D

everything is fine , and it will all work

I would choose Win 8 , but the set up can be a little more difficult

fixed. this is better

-680s are the worst value given a 670 can easily overclock to 680 levels and beyond
-you dont really need a sound card unless you have a good headset. and if i were to get a sound card it would never be from creative
-4gb cards are not useful for single monitor gaming. and if you are gaming on more than one monitor, get a 7970.
-much better keyboard included
-you dont need that much wattage
-id get a smaller case like the R4
-maximus v is overkill. you wont ever use the 4way SLI capabilities
-better SSD although the deluxe is pretty good
-IPS monitor is slower but offers better image quality

I'll Sli the 680 in the future.. and I do use a headset. Last but not least i'll be overclocking so I need a decent cooling system. Thanks for ur reply :)

-with a 750 or 850w psu, you can only SLI 2 cards; something that can be done on any SLi certified boards
-a "good" headset. something like a sennhiser pc350 is a good headset.
-heatsinks offer the same thing as those fisher price watercoolers. if you want good closed loop watercooling you will have to wait for swiftech to release their h220 cooler. that is the one that i would actually consider

Also which sound card would u recommend?
January 20, 2013 9:23:51 PM

is that the best cooling system i can get? will i be able to overclock with it?

the h220 is the best "easy" cooler you can get. the phanteks is the best heatsink you can get
