How is this even a question? If you can afford two 580s go for it!

the hx 1000 is old and not on the current standards.

Just get a 1000w gold plus psu if you're planning on going big (ie sli 580s). It'll last you for a lifetime and you won't ever need to worry about it be it hardware failure or for future upgrades. Moreover such psus come with hella long warranty. Like my 850w; it has a 7 year warranty.

My current setup runs anything (with exception of 2033) thrown at it at with maxed out settings with the exception of Ubersampling. Trust me, it doesn't matter. Think of sli560 & sli580 as one that can do ubersampling, which is just one feature, and one that can't.

In the end it all boils down to $. Will you fork out an exorbitant amount that can be used on better things in life (like a frikin jet ski), or are you willing to settle for something that's already more than good enough? Think of the computer as an investment - How much do you want to put into it, is it worth it, are you passionate about it etc.

Here's the current setup in my cart:



I know the Hyper 212+ isn't the worlds greatest, but I'll just roll at 4.0Ghz until I can afford something better.

EDIT: It's 2x 580s in the cart, everything else is 1x

You have a very "imbalanced" build. By that I mean some hardware is mediocre whilst some are overkill. What are you planning on doing with the computer you're building? "max out games" isn't enough information. Any photoshop, video recording/editting, multitasking, specific applications you use on a daily basis you might want to mention? It'll be much easier for us to pinpoint which parts you should change that way.

It's mainly a gaming PC. Probably a bit of programming, but that's hardly taxing. If I was to order what I require of this PC, it would be:

1. Gaming (90% of the reason I'm building, as my laptop in my sig covers about everything else)
2. Light Web Browsing, Video Playback, Music Playback
3. Light Programming (Java, C#, mostly command line stuff, no 3D etc)

I'll probably still use my laptop in my sig for everyday browsing from bed/around the house etc.

I hate negativity! (Negative Remark LOL)

It looks like a decent setup to be quite honest. You underestimate that Hyper 212+ though. They can do 4.8GHz most of the time with a good push/pull setup and temps would not be terrible either, 70-80C. Good thermal paste is needed too.

I do not know what you are thinking when you are searching for the right parts. Is there a budget in mind? I loved my Asus P8P67 Pro and it really is solid for everything. It is a good overclocker and has a lot of great features. I liked the new bios!

If I were to suggest anything that would be a sideways move cost wise, it would be to opt for G.Skill RAM rated at 1.5v. You can push these chips pretty hard and you would have a little room to oc the sticks by pushing 1.65v through them.

F3 is a great spinner, but I have seen a lot of F3 failures recently and never was thrilled about Samsung HD's, however many people love them. I think WD Black is more reliable, more quiet, and could last longer. Personally, I am hooked on SSD's! Had one, sold it, got a spinner, hated something I once loved, back to SSD. I think you will be happy with a spinner though. I just multi-task a lot and really need something that can do it.

Your case, it is nice, but I am skeptical about it's airflow. It seems like more of a server case with all those HD bays. Those bays are going to restrict the 2 front fans airflow horribly. You have one exhaust and one GPU fan slot that does not have a fan. With a big heatsink and the heat an oc'd 2500K is going to generate, I feel you should seek something with a better side fan setup and maybe even top fans. Your pricepoint on this item has much better choices.

Lastly, I am not a PSU guru! I like Seasonic and Corsair myself. I believe Coolermaster may be a bad choice, but let's see some other opinions. I do feel 850 will be plenty enough though! Even if you oc everything!

EDIT: The case, I have been looking at it more and am starting to like it. I did not see the top fan and did not realize they were 180mm. Get a side fan for it.
