MSI has the best non- reference cooling.

EVGA just makes reference cards and has a good warranty.

Since you mention the EVGA GeForce GTX 580 3072MB Hydro Copper 2, are you planning on building a watercooling loop? These cards have waterblocks for cooling, therefore I'm assuming you plan to watercool your system, correct?

this. judging by your post, your level of know-how means you're not going liquid, and therefore the evga hydrocopper isn't for you.

that being said, as long as you're using just one screen, 1 580 is more than enough for you.
the asus 580 and the msi (both 1.5gb and 3gb versions) are the best choices imo. evga have the best warranty but their thermal solutions don't come anywhere near msi/asus/gigabyte

sounds great. haf x is a beast of a case with great circulation. consider going positive pressure on it.

the only thing i would change is the titanium sound card - in my experience the asus cards are much better (specifically the Essence ST - ordered it myself), and with your budget you won't have an issue with the essence st's 200$ price tag.

Get 1 580GTX 1.5g/3g version. And maybe look for one that uses aftermarket cooling. Better cooling and lower noise.

About sound card etc.I need for best gaming.I'll use headsets btw.I think titanium HD is best for gaming.Also making this rig for best gaming performance to make it nuff coming 3-4years with small upgrades.I can spend about 4000USD.(without including mouse,monitor etc).

I paid around £800 for both of my 580s, but that's because I am in Europe. I went with MSI because of the cooling and awesome custom features these cards have for overclocking.

Regardless, buying two 580s for a 60Hz 1200p monitor is a waste. You should look up 120Hz monitors (they refresh faster, meaning that they are able to display more frames per second, resulting in smoother motion), or a 2560x1600 monitor.

Still, IPS panels are not very good for gaming, since they are still too slow.

What's your budget for the monitor? I'd recommend going with a 1080/1200p TN panel if you want to save some cash, or like I said, a 120Hz or 2560x1600 monitor if you really want to take advantage of two GTX580s.

EDIT: Sorry, I didn't notice your second choice for a monitor was the 120Hz Benq. Yes, that would fit in nicely with two 580s, and is priced very reasonably, at least over here. There are, however, better choices when it comes to image quality, provided you wish to spend a little more on the monitor.

Then its a 3GB GTX 580 for you. Pick EVGA if you want lifetime warranty but reference cooling. Pick MSI/ASUS/Gigabyte for awesome coolers.
