Are you just gaming? if so.

8gb of ram instead of 32gb save some money

i5 3570k. No diffrence between the i7 and i5 for gaming

h80 is overpriced for its performance a noctua d14 for cheaper will out perform it.

660 ti sli. the 192bit will be a limiting factor later on in games 670 sli or 7950 crossfire would of been my choice.

And for me persoanlly rosewill isnt my favorite brand i would of taken a 850w xfx/seasonic/corsair etc

The main thing is the ram and the gpus. 32gb is WAYYY overkill and 660 ti 192bit interface will start to show later on with big title games. I know some people who bought 660ti sli and keep getting fps drops at 2560x1600. beacause of the small 192bit

But this is just me Its your pc

Awesome advice i see what your saying i just looked that up. so if i return them i will have enough for one evga gtx 680 4gb. do you think that would be a good choice? would i have a performance drop? if not i would not mind doing that and saving up for a second 680 in the future but i would not be able you get the second one right away.

What resolution you on dude?

Unless your doing triple monitors the 4gb is overkill. also dont look at the 680. the 670 is a 100 dollars less. and performs about 5-8% slower. Get a 2gb 670 sli if you can :-)

7950 crossfire is also a option however. for dual gpu setups i prefer nvidia. im no fanboy i have a 7970ghz my self. its just that for dual gpu setups nvidia is better imo

Accually i just saw you have a 1920x1080 mointor. get a single 7970ghz or a gtx 670 it will max out every game. and maybie with the extra money get a 27inch 1920x1080.

i went from 22inch to 27inch omg the improvement is like ZOMG haha

the reasion i have 32 gig of ram (honestly i just like the look of my ram slots being full as for the power supply im pissed i bought that one because modular is so much cleaner when it comes to wire management i hate the bundle of wires leftover.

Hmm well at that resolution 670 sli would be very nice. however the extra vram from the 7950 would be nice too.

Could you return your 660ti sli maybie get 670 sli and get 8gb of ram instead of 32gb and that should cover the costs?

im actually adding the two evga 670 to my newegg cart right now. ill just dish out the extra 200 and keep the memory. once they come in ill send back the two gtx 660ti's. hopefully my wife does not look at the bank statement till i return the other cards and get my credit back lol. she is already pissed i spent so much already.
