I heard three 580's in SLI is better than two 590's. Also you can't overclock the 590's that much due to the vrm's popping (or something like that). I have two 580's also, and they are killing the crap outta crysis 2 and RUSE.

Nice build bro, though I got a very similar build with a WC loop for about the same price (I didn't have to purchase monitors or a sound system).

Agreed, but a very nice build you have there. Only suggestion is moving the 5.1 speakers around. Your getting crushed with surround sound.

For my first build I didn't really want to bother with the complications of custom water cooling. I'll definitely think about upgrading to a custom loop in the future though.
