Thanks for the replies guys, much appreciated.
Which cooler would you recommend for a cheaper price? I heard the H100 is Overkill. (I'll be getting the i5 3570k and plan to OC it to whatever ghz i can get it at safest point) (Would the ram i have work ultimately with this cpu?, Would you suggest there's any better ram than the one i have listed)
I'm not getting the 2 tb, going to wait for New years for deals. (No need for this space atm, putting money to better my videocard choice.)
Which videocard would you recommend would work best with my comp. I'm looking for something on the cheaper side, that will play anything out right now in ultra (no choppyness,lag, etc)
Also, which Moniter would you recommend would be the best for gaming. I heard people talking about Asus screens being good.
P.S, i know you might've answered some of these already. Just looking for more feedback. (i'll probably be sticking with the h60 cooler, i want the IB processor), and if you know of a good 850w PSU for 2 cards, that'd be awesome to know! thanks!
i've eventually be single 690, or dualing something lower at a good price
