    ok thanks! :d but will i need low profile anyways? :ouch:
  6. yeah with 212 evo it's recommended
    better get low profile right away and not risk it
  7. Hi, Maybe everyone is busy till later...lol

    If you have that much to spend I will suggest a system for you. Others will come on and suggest some lessr components, because some of what I say may be considdered overkill considering your planned usage.

    All this will make you a rocking system for about $1677 and leave yo enough cash to purchase another gpu for sli if you are so inclined. You could make do with 2x4gb ram, but it doesn't cost much more to get 2x8 and be ready for the future...lol (as if)
    You could prob get away with i5 3570k as well, but again, look at your budget!!!
    You could get a lesser just about everyhing and still play anything you want, but if you are like most guys you wont be happy if you know it could have been better...

    Also you can shop around and find better deals, I just used all newegg for simplicity...
