Bye bye Tri-Fire or Versatility =\\

And yes you wouldn't beable to find another 5870 new, they are pretty much all gone for any reasonable price. At that buying a used one is buyer be ware.

As for your GPU, simply wait it out.

AMD 7000 series is going to be released in Q4 or Q1 2012 then you can hook your self up with some 7870's.

As for your build that is a pretty pricey case, though I would without a doubt go with a full tower, try and look for good combo's/deals if your using newegg. There are alot of em.

I'm a huge fan of Corsairs but I had to do alot of hunting to find mine on a decent sale, 850W is perfect but for your your doing 750W will work too. That is a pretty price tag on that as well, I only payed about 110$ for mine 2 years ago.

For CPU Cooler the H80 performs marginally better then the 920, that or you could possibly go for the H100 which is unsurpassed by all of them.

So.

My main recommendation is change that cooler to the H100.

And Hold out on the GPU's for now.



And not being a fan of 3D, I don't really see the reason to go for that monitor personally its just really pricey. But Each to their own I prefer not having headaches looking at my screen with silly glasses on.
Thanks for advice.Yeah I agree the slot design is stupid but I'll never do anything over a 2 card gpu setup so I'm ok with it. guess ill just get a 6950 and wait for the 7000 series. The reason for the 3d monitor is not the 3d. It's the 120hertz. I really hate the feel of a laggy monitor. I notice my FPS lag in bf2. I average around 70 but I still feel it being choppy. I'm very picky when it comes to frame rate lag. So the 120hertz capability will also help in that department.
