Without sli or 1200w psu, it was about $3100 without shipping/tax.

I am going to assume that building it yourself is NOT an option. I work full time and also in college, so I feel ya. Some here don't seem to understand that...

Have ya tried Digital Storm Online?

www.digitalstormonline.com

They are a bit more pricey, but the H2O cooling customization on their site is amazing. And their build quality will run circles around iBuyPower or CyberPower PC.

I'm assuming saving every penny isn't a priority here, so I'm not gonna give you a Build-it-yourself speech. Heard some shady things about iBuyPower and CyberPower PC, is why I recommended Digital Storm Online.

I have looked at them, but I'm not too big on watercooling either. iBuyPower is the best I can find for what I need.

You seem to have your mind set on ibuypower! No-one is convincing you of anything else. You ought to get what you want. At least Digital Storm have a forum to discuss any problems without buggering around with customer services!

Oh and they look the business. Some ot the cases are a bit special!!

I don't want to run two cards (sli) and I am only going to run a single 1080p monitor. I -might- run 3 in the future, but I'm not too big on overclocking or running 3 monitors.
You say you don't want to run SLI but are you aware the GTX 590 is a dual GPU card? Or are you just saying you don't want to run two cards? I'd recommend a GTX 580 1.5GB or a HD 6990 which I believe is better than the GTX 590.

The Z68 is unnecessary. Just grab the P67.

Do you have a mate you can pay to build it for you? Buy the parts, get them shipped to your place, give him a few hundred to put it together while you're studying or something?

If your current system is still reasonably fast, wait.

That cooler looks identical to the H50.
I say, wait for Kepler. In the meantime go for a budget powerhouse card like the 560 Ti or the 6950.

[QUOTE=problemgaming;14498508] Believe me, if I had the time, I would definitely build one, but I am caught up between work and college and get maybe 4-6 hours of sleep everyday.
