An SSD stands for Solid-State-Drive, it is a storage drive which is a lot faster and opens everything instantly.

SSD is not such a great upgrade, specially for Gaming, you'll see no improvements at all.

You should be looking at something like this;

You could be looking at something like this;

i5 2500k
Cooler Master Hyper 212+
Asus P8P67 PRO B3
4GB G-Skill Ripjaws X 1600Mhz CL7
Samsung Spintpoint F3 1TB
x2 Sapphire HD6950 2GB or x2 Sapphire HD6970 2GB
Corsair HX750
Cooler Master 690 II Advanced

With such a big budget, you should really consider going with high-end GPU's and a better platform like Sandy Bridge.

Also, when do you plan on building the PC? Bulldozer (Newest AMD platform/socket) is coming out in June, maybe you should wait to see what AMD can offer with their new processors.

I suppose, but I don't really want an Intel CPU, because personally, I don't like intel, and the problem in my country (New Zealand) is, everything to do with computers cost a small fortune, lol, and I still reckon having 2 6850's, being cheap, should play anything maxed out. shouldn't they?

Yeah, x2 HD6850's should easily max out anything out in the market RIGHT NOW, but with such a budget, you have a great opportunity if building a rig with high-end GPU's.

You may not like Intel, but you should really consider it, since they have the best performance in the market right now...

If you don't want Intel, then I suggest you wait for Bulldozer, buying an X6 processor from AMD right now is a huge mistake in my opinion, the X6 processors have a very old architecture and they're not really worth it really.

I'd wait for Bulldozer then.

Well, at the moment I'm using a Phenom II x4 840, and it goes fine, plays everthing nicely and is quick. I'm sure intel is better, but the fact is, I'm not a HUGE enthusiast, i just play games like MW2 and Left for dead 2, games like that. Mainly the only reason i want another 6850, is so i can rub it in my friends face!

The only reason i want a 6x processor, is that a heard something about bottlenecking with the GPU, and the motherboard is because my motherboard at the moment is crap, and the case because it looks awesome

Just a note, an X4 840 @ 4Ghz will do the same bottleneck than the X6 1090T @ 4Ghz.

I've had an X4 965 Black Edition @ 4Ghz, then an X6 1055T @ 4Ghz, then an i7 2600k, I still had a bit of bottleneck with 2 cards on both AMD systems.

If you don't want to go Intel, or wait for Bulldozer, stay like you are, the X6 1090T is NOT an upgrade for gaming, you will not benefit from it at all, I'd just stay like you are.

I totally agree w kcuestag. 2500k is surely the way to go. But instead of asus board I'd go asrock extreme4

Don't buy another graphics card, get an SSD. And with that budget you should get a 120GB one. Mine was £160, so it wasn't that expensive.

Trust me you will never regret getting an ssd.

And it does in fact decrease game loading times and map loading times.

So what the cheapest motherboard that supports ATI crossfire and 2500k?

No, this is just completely wrong if you're a gamer.

You're telling me, as a gamer, you would prefer an SSD over a way better Graphic Card?

No thanks, I rather play games smoother, than having my PC boot up faster.
