Only thing I would add is a 64gb ssd for the os and some main programs. A crucial m4 would be best. It will cost around $100 USD. I think they are on eBay for cheap because of the deal they just had on newegg.

Good build.

Grab the Hitachi D though like someone else suggested instead of the F3. I'm not a huge fan of the case, but I understand the choice with regards to budget. Good CPU/GPU/MB/Memory, can't go wrong with any of that stuff. I would get a smaller wattage PSU though as well. 750 is overkill for that system even with 560 SLI. SeaSonic X Series or Enermax may be good choices. Search recommended PSU in the top right hand corner and follow that page.

Ok, are you talking about the page that lists PSU's and links to the reviews? If so, what would be sufficient wattage for two 560's and everything else I want to run?

The seasonic x-650 is the same price as the corsair TX750 I'm looking at.

This is the case I was originally looking at:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811139010

I could get this PSU instead of the other one and get the cooler case:

This.

That build looks perfect, I recently bought a M4 64gb for my msi780dxr (wish I had the money to get one for the sig rig ): ) It boots up in 13secs, and windows is so "snappy" now on it!

It was fairly affordable also, I got it for 110$.

Also the case is nice, I really like it, although I'd go for the white version (;

Yeah, I'm adding a SSD from another site. That was one thing everyone recommended so I made room for it in my budget.

Another thing to add, do I need to worry about getting any extra case fans or anything like that? Both cases I'm trying to decide between look they come with some fans and all that but just want to be sure.

Nice build!

Good pick on the memory
What do all think of corsair Dominator memory? is it any good?
Wow, I didn't know that ASUS owns it... Why are they so cheap?

ASrock used to be owned by ASUS, they split off a while ago, hence the similar names. They were their 'cheap' brand but have come to surpass ASUS.

Honestly ASUS is horrible. I've been going back and forth with them for 10 months on my ROG motherboard. From trying to charge me to fix something in warranty to getting a board with obvious physical damage, to being ignored completely I wouldn't touch them with a 10 ft pole. I've heard nothing but good from ASrock, they seem a very solid choice, only reason I didn't go with them is because I didn't like their color scheme.

As for the GPU, I wouldn't bother getting a second one later on, the 1GB of VRAM will be a bottleneck. I go up to 1400mb on my single monitor quite often.
I would suggest paying a little extra for a good 6950. I had a GTX570 but between having a few driver issues and running out of VRAM, I cut my losses and moved back to AMD.
Your mileage may vary, a lot of happy NVIDIA owners and most people have no driver issues on both sides.

Other than that you have a very solid build, normally I would recommend a cheaper PSU, but I had an XFX fry most of my last rig, Corsair is known to make some of the best PSUs and stand by them so they are worth it.

Enjoy your new rig.
