More about need case possibly improvements
  1. What are you using this for? if it is just gaming, you could save yourself a lot of money.
  2. Waste of money if only for gaming. You could shave off even $1k and it'll still be a beast.
  3. could you show me this "cheaper" version Sir?

    if i changed the i7 to an i5-3570k and went with 8 gb of ram i think thats all id shave off... ima overclock this to hell so id like two GPUs i dont know what else to get rid of.

    im going to be running bf3, planetside 2, skyrim, etc... all on ultra and i need good fps 40-60 range, less if i go eyeinfinity with a couple of monitors

    sugestions?
  5. Unless you are gaming on triple monitors, you dont need to crossfire 7970's They can run everything on max setting at high resolutions.

    i would like multiple screens in the future but i wont have to much money in the future.

    i have money right now so i figure get cards now and get screens in the future.

    see my logic?
  7. A good case is the nzxt switch 810. It has very good airflow and design. They are relatively inexpensive.
