6870's in xfire do wonders and you can pick them up for about $150 a pop.

I'd also advise an X6, he'll regret it later if he just gets the X4.

600T is an AMAZING case, I used it in a build for a buddy of mine...probably the best mid-tower case I've ever seen in person.
Why does the 560 TI suck? It is a great card. Better than my 6870 ever was.

i dont see why everyone has to argue! lol Its just a build that none of you will ever see (not being ungreatful) but to those of you who have nothing good to say about it, dont post in the thread. If you do, you are just instigating. To all who have put forth positive suggestions (whether or not its an Intel suggestion is irrelevant) thank you!
As ive said before, i dont hate on intel, because for others, it works. We all have our preferences, but as just a guy tryin to get some advice, lets keep it positive.
Bare in mind, i will never outcast somone for suggesting intel. Its obvious that most who do are just trying to help. As far as calling an AMD rig a failure, thats just cocky, and unwelcome in my most HUMBLE opinion.

An $1100 gaming PC with a Phenom II is utter failure.

Well.... I have to agree that if the budget is this high, there is no AMD that will do your dollars justice.

If you must build an AMD rig in this budget, your best route is to bottle the CPU with a crossfired pair of decent GPUs like 6870s.

I would use the Hyper 212+ or Noctua DH-14. It's air, but I don't think you'll need water cooling unless you plan to overclock. (Do you???) Also, it'll save about $40. And don't listen to people bashing AMD. My rig runs crysis just fine, and I don't see intel anywhere on it

One thing we do know is that SB is the best that can be had right now, and you can put a decent rig together with a 2500k for $1100 that will beat any thing AMD has out, and will perform very well for games for years. Wishful thinking won't make it faster than Intel.

I wouldn't call it cocky, I'd call it true. It's like saying you have $100 to spend for a great dinner, then going to Mcdonalds.
