EDIT:
Also, if you are "watercooling down the line" you should get a cheaper air cooler, instead of the H100, the 212+ is very good. And then do a custom watercooled loop later on

Ok so I think I finally have my list down and what I am going to order... Here goes..

CASE
MOBO
GPU X2
PSU
CPU
RAM
Cooling

That corsair is pretty usable across most platforms out.. I would re use this on another build.. I think it would be a solid investment.. atm at least.

Still needing a KB and monitor. KB easy.. but monitor I am going to need help with..

Gaming monitor obviously


Thanks

Keyboard:
What sort of games are you going to be playing? MMO's? FPS?

Monitors:
what is your budget?
What sort of resolution do you want to run at? 1080p?
Do you want a multiple monitor setup? Do you mind the bars between the monitors?
Do you just one a big 2560 x 1600 Monitor? <--EXPENSIVE

CPU Cooler:
Is this your final CPU cooler? I remember in your original post you were talking about WC. Are you going to use this cooler or do a custom WC setup?

I do want at a minimum 1920x1200 for a single monitor... But would love a great 2 combo monitor setup.. I can grab these locally if the price is right. If there is something on newegg I can go that route also.. But monitors have always been something I have been skeptical about ordering online. I am going to do a custom loop down the road... when IVY comes out.. I have most of the stuff now for a loop but want to keep this one simple.. I can always use that cooler on the older stuff as well.. Just my thought as of now.
I don't mind the bars if its cheaper.. lol

Humor me on the huge one though lol

Thanks!
