Welcome to the OCN community.
Also, congratulations on your first system, it seems to be a good build. Are you a long time lurker but a first time poster?

For the most part yes, I always seemed to end up here when info gathering or problem solving over the years, most of the time I had a friend build it for me and suggest the parts, I slowly learned enough over the years through him but mostly reading things online that I felt I could finally build my own from start to finish. Other then a oops the hard drive didn't lock in the hot swap bay right on the initial startup and a DoA AP181 from Silverstone it all went much smoother then I thought it would for a first time build.

Welcome . How do you find the performance with 2 x 6870s? I was considering the same but ended up with the Asus GTX 580 Matrix in the end for my new build.

I didn't run any benchmarks or anything on them but I can say some games I can't even tell the difference but on others its pretty noticeable, not so much on the higher FPS but more so what all settings can be turned up higher and maintain smooth play.
