Thanks so much for your help all.

Just a quick question - would you all deem it more prudent to shave off some cost to enhance the GPU? I see a lot of talk about GTX 580's (especially 3gb versions). Does it make more sense to go with a cheaper psu/case and extend my budget to a fancier GPU?


Thanks all,

(P.S. I'm considering SLI'ing the 560ti in the upcoming months, which I know is supposed to out perform single 580's. Given my choice of PSU, is this a good move?)

You could go with a Corsair AX850 or 750 they are based on Seasonic with a cheaper fan I believe, correct me if I am wrong.
Corsair HX850 or 750 is also a good bet but its not fully modular, just remember they are upgraded to 80+ gold. http://www.plugloadsolutions.com/80P...x?id=25&type=2
Can't go wrong with either Corsair or Seasonic

Than either get 580 or SSD or go with HAF X instead. Or if you wanna save even more money go with Cooler Master 690 II Advanced really good value case.
Though 560 Ti is the price/performance sweet spot and will do you wonders really.
560 Ti sli will do wonders as well! Your seasonic will have plenty of power as well as the corsair I suggested and be a bit cheaper.

The 3gb 580 is only if you plan on playing with Nvidia surround it would be handy with the extra memory there.

But what I plan to do is get a 560 Ti and than wait for the new GeForce Series and see how they perform

Are optical drives really still necessary? I prefer just using my USB sticks. You download most of the stuff anyway.

Again its based on your needs.

I am giving $1842 for my setup though that's without including my new screen,keyboard. Also without windows since I already have a copy.
Damn taxes! I ******* hate living in Denmark.

I end up giving $2374 for the whole thing!
