My System Specs


For the graphics i will be running 1920X1200 but on that note i would like to find myself a card that i can push up all the eye candy in a game at that rez
For that you're going to be looking at a Dual GPU.....260 SLI will even be hard pressed to "crank up" all the eye candy at 1920 x 1200 Res and maintain great FPS +45 - 50...you're better of to go with a x 280 or x 285 solution.
Also, don't mess around with anything less than a 1kW PSU for that I7 Build...for an extra $50 or so get something decent to start with...as in 1kW.
Think about,,,,you're talking about 1920 x 1200 "all eye candy on" = Dual GPU
I7 OC'd to 4 Ghz
3 x 2GB Tri Channel memory @ 1600 Mhz
And a Water Cooling solution............

Go 1kW...
Introducing me n my OCD to Watercooling, is like taking an Alcoholic to an "all you can drink" Beach Bar in Mexico
