I see. I actually prefer Nvidia drivers myself. $3200 is too much for a gaming pc IMHO the way prices are at now, even for a serious set up. Looking to do gtx470 sli once bulldozer comes out. 2600k eyeinfinity with say, two 6970s should be achieveable for $1500 I would think. Has there been any BD performance numbers out to make people want to plan for BD?

Nothing other than these "leaks" of stock speeds and ram timings, benches wont be out for another month or so probably. I totaly agree my build was under 1000 and I didn't put much in my GPU or Mobo, I wish I had when I had the money. But I had to put a clutch in my car 2 days before I bought every thing... good bye $500.

Well I am a video editor as well so I need a PC that will be able to do it all.

I wasn't factoring in the monitors in your budget. Well if you want the best...then you have to pay for it. Probably using SSD drives etc. at that price point. Just remember how fast tech moves. A $3200 system today is $2000 in 6 months.

I don't see how 2 580's and 16GB of ram will slow you down...

Get 2 6990s, and CFX them! That Adata RAM is overpriced but I haven't seen 8GB sticks before. I still respect them though since they're taiwanese.

For me, spend all your spare money. This will put you into a satisfaction state for some time.

Oh I see, then that makes it worth it in that case. I definitely would consider going with a watercooled set up. A big case that can fit a quad radiator on the top. I'd be interested to see if a feser quad radiator could handle an 8 core bulldozer and two beastly gpus.

Definitely interested to see how your rig turns out, should be amazing.

I'm still thinking whether to get 16GB of RAM or keep 8GB...

Why are you recommending items that are out of stock and hard to find!?

I'm not ever going to water cool GPU's. Just a thing that is not necessary for me.
