If you're gaming@ 1080p, sli 570 will be plenty and it'll save you a good chunk of cash.

I'm quite anal when it comes to frame rates. This rig is being built in anticipation of some future games, like Battlefield 3, and I want to try and get as close to 60FPS as possible and high, if not highest settings.

I play at 1080p.

I'd recommend just buying one 580 for now. If you have low frames on battlefield 3 or any game, buy another at that time. It'll cost you less now, and less later

Buld I did for ya SK, I know its over budget a little, but for the £1400 you got I just dont see any point in buying anything less than a 2600k. Personally if it was me id take out a gtx 580, and then use that money to buy a Vertex 3 120gb SSD for £240. I think the boost from an SSD would please me more than having the second GPU, but thats just me!

Well the thing is, I'd rather make the expense now, while I have the spare cash, and not have to worry about it.

How to the coolers compare to the H60 etc?

I like the compactness of the Corsair kits, and those coolers are two of the biggest I've ever seen

Check the first post again, I updated the build.

It's total is £1388 which is within my budget.

I'm undecided on the cooler, and whether I should go for 570 SLI or 580 SLI.
