If it makes you feel any better, you spent money more wisely.

He'll run games at 250fps, you'll run them at 80, the realworld difference..? none.

^^This^

after 35+ FPS the human eye can't tell the difference, but there is a certain satisfaction that comes from running games maxed out with over 200FPS headroom, that I can understand, also its about budgeting. Right now I dont have a gaming PC, but I can literary right now go out and build a pretty good gaming PC (AMD 840, GTX 560 TI, SSD) but since I want my next PC to be a Dream Machine I've decided to hold off for about 6 months and SAVE up for it, by November-December ill be posting about "How to setup my dual 590s or" and "which games look better on my 2560x1440 Ultrasharp Monitor" you'd be surprised at how much money you can save in 6 months, even if its only 150 a month saved for 6 months to a year ( $900-$1800) he saved for 2 years thats budgeting at its finest, sadly "Credit Cards" and "Buy now Pay later" mo-tos has reduced this art to a "who does that anymore" Phrase... who can blame us

if i had a penny for each time ive heard a variation of that i would be rich.

i must not have human eyes because the difference between 35 fps and my normal 85 is like night and day. when running 140Hz its also noticeable from say 60 to 140. maybe its my crt, i dont know.

CPU : 990x / 980x , but i heard 990s overclock a bit better )
MB : EVGA 4-way sli classified mb / Msi x58a-oc / msi big bang - xpower / whichever you want . (i'd go with the evga)
Ram : 12GB dominators
Gpus : Definately 3GB 580s , 3 preferably , for your budget
Monitors : 3 3D ready monitors ...
Nvidia 3d vision kit
PSU : Enermax 1250 85+ . I know it's a bit more than you need , but if you're watercooling , you're gonna have a lot of fans and a pump / maybe 2 ... so just precautions ..
Case : This is up to you ... maybe a tj09 or tj11 considering your budget and the fact that you're watercooling . I would say tj11 .
Hard drives : 2 spinpoint f3 in raid0 maybe , just for data
And a vertex 3 for os and prograns ...
And OFC , a bd-drive

think about it . If you like what i said , i'll make a wishlist for you .

That's true, resolution, size and hertz all play a part, but for a nice 22-24 inch @ 1920x1080 @ 60hz anything over 35+ FPS isnt noticeable, that held true for a few years until 120-140hrz and higher resolutions became more mainstream when prices became more reasonable. So I'm speaking from the perspective of the ladder.

Realworld difference? He'll be playing games @ max settings for A LOT longer than you will be.

Oh god please stop you're talking out of your ass.

Everyone can see over 35fps. If you can't I'm sorry but you've got the worst pair of eyes in existance.

The difference is, you can't see over 60fps but NOT because your eyes cant tell the difference, but because most monitors are 60hz, and even if you dont have vsync turned on the monitor can still only display 60fps and it'll tear if youre above that. If you have a true 120hz monitor, you wont be able to see over 120fps as the monitor can't display any higher.

If you played at game capped at 35fps, and then played a game at 120fps and you couldn't tell a difference, you need to go get corrective eye surgery.

You can do it... but getting the 590 to a 580 clock speed just won't work with the voltage cap on the 590 now, unless you underclock the 580.

I'm sorry but if it's anything less than 40-50 fps, it just seems too slow.
