So there you have it. An amazing system with class. You have it in your budget to go gtx580's in SLI instead of the gtx 570's if you need, or add more storage/ssds. I suggest getting a couple of SATA 3.0 Gbs ssd's for games, I use the patriot inferno's. As well as buy the best mouse keyboard out there. Also you need to choose a monitor. I have a 27" viewsonic 1080p with 1 ms response time and I love it!!!!!!!!

Edit** Don't forget to get a copy of Windows 7 64 bit! Links added!

Eldonko has a great build there.

I have a very similar system and it runs everything great up to now, check my specs.

I would also go with the MSi 580 if you can, its excellent, and the ASUS motherboard can overclock the CPU for you, which takes out all of the effort on your end.

My System Specs

Smile New Build

Another +1 4 Eldonko's build. I would put an OCZ SSD 4 my os. Consider getting a modular, or mostly modular psu like the HX series from Corsair. If u want some room 2 possibly go sli later, a

1000w would cover it. This 1 has blue lighting:
Newegg.ca - CORSAIR Gaming Series GS800 800W ATX12V v2.3 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC High Performance Power Supply. The HX 1000 goes 4 about $220+ taxes.

Without looking at prices or comparisons, my storage HDD would likely b WD Black 2 tb, though there is a blue series HDD with 6gb/s speed.

My cpu cooler would b different, but his suggestion works. Likely a Noctua cooler 4 me. Then paint or change fans 2 blue:
Newegg.ca - Noctua NH-D14 120mm & 140mm SSO CPU Cooler

The HAF X comes with a blue version as well as red.
Newegg.ca - COOLER MASTER HAF X Blue Edition RC-942-KKN3 Black Steel / Plastic ATX Full Tower Computer Case

I thought another member here was going 4 the blue as well, Chalaska?

Here's a good choice 4 a mobo:
Newegg.ca - ASUS P8Z68-V PRO LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

For my gpu, a lifetime warranty, or 10yrs,.... from EVGA.
Newegg.ca - EVGA SuperClocked 015-P3-1582-AR GeForce GTX 580 (Fermi) 1536MB 384-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

Not 10 yr warranty, but keeping with the blue set up.

I might consider a 2500k depending on budget constraints, as they oc very well, but likely go 4 the 2600k.

As 4 memory, if I could find blue Mushkins, that would b my choice, but there are these:
Newegg.ca - G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Desktop Memory Model F3-10666CL8D-4GBXM

Good luck with your build and welcome 2 HWC!!!




Edit: I would also add a gpu fan, blue of course:
NCIX.com - Buy Coolermaster R4-L2R-20AC 120MM Blue LED Case Fan 2000RPM 69CFM 19DBA 3/4 Pin - COOLERMASTER - R4-L2R-20AC-GP - in Canada

That's a cheap 1 that I haven't really looked at, but would look 4 cfms, and dbs b4 buying.

A quick build with the blue theme at a reasonable price. Enough 2 allow 4 2 580s in sli 4 3D and multi

monitor gaming and still b within budget.

Edit 2: Forgot 2 add SSD,
OCZ Vertex 2 120GB 3.5IN SATA2 Sandforce SF-1200 Solid State Disk Flash Drive SSD

I know it's a V2, but still fast at a more reasonable price. The V3:
OCZ 120GB Vertex 3 SATA III 2.5" Solid VTX3-25SAT3-120G B&H

Just to to figure out case and then I am golden

800D is awesome for water cooling, but for air, most people seem less then thrilled.

The 650D is a better air cooling case, of the two.

Haf X? Doubt you'll find a better air cooled case, but Im not personally a fan of the overall looks. Wouldn't hesistate to use it though, its a nicely designed case for sure. Plus it'll fit Eatx and XLATX motherboards if you want a bigger E-Peen(heh heh)
