Default Build Challenge

Hellooooo alll,/

My know it all friend thinks this is the best build for the best price, i highly doubt that. Please prove him wrong.

You guys haven't let me down before, although the amount of people on the website has sky rocketed, and the amount of people willing to give good advice down, i still believe Hardwarecanucks has quality build pro's (redundancy*)

Agreed. And I'll just touch on a couple of points.

Your PSU is overkill, unless you plan to run 3 of those GPUS. It's also not a well known brand. A Seasonic or Corsair 750w/850w would be more than enough.

The D-link wireless adapter is overpriced, and your basic wireless G connection is faster than your ADSL or Cable connection to your ISP. Unless you do a lot of internal transfers on your network, you'll never see the difference.

Like the others have said, the Corsair at any wattage is pretty good. Myself, I just finished looking into mobos and decided on the Asus P6X58D-E. I've found some impressive reviews on this board, but it's a matter of choice. Good luck.
