Look in my sig below to see. Currently it's overclocked to 4.8Ghz (need to update) and stable.
Upgrades planned:
2x eVGA 560Ti FPB for 3 way SLI
Corsair HX1200 PSU
8GB of G.Skill Ram
1 or 2 SSDs though I don't know what I should buy (suggestion?)
Some watercooling setup.... (suggestions for that??)
Thanks OCN,
Have a great wednesday!

firstly a GTX 560Ti cannot support 3 Way Sli
700
and for sure short conformation check the Official EVGA site HERE rolleyes.gif

Secondly
your motherboard has only two x8 PCIe slots the Third one works @ x4 if even you think on SLi/CF in future make sure you have a thing in mind one thing for CF/SLi minimum you need a x8/x8 PCie Config

thirdly whats you total budget ???

Answer to 1 and 2: Well good to know. Tis why I'm waiting for cash so I can pick me up a 680 and just be done with it. Screw the 560 and run 1 680.

Answer to 3: Budget is a meh right now. Almost out of college and making $20+/hr so it's not to bad right now. I'd like to saw for everything in my "planned" upgrades I'd like to max out at $1800, but am willing to go a bit extra

GPU: Well I will got for 1 right now and that should be future resistant (for a while)
SSD: I've heard ups and downs with SSDs from samsung. I love their products but again ups and downs with SSDs. The only thing I plan on getting a SSD for is my OS and maybe 1 or 2 games on it.
PSU: I've only ever owned Corsair series. And they've been nothing but the best. No idea on silverstone quality.
WC: That was the exact one I was looking at!!! Look at this forum --> http://www.overclock.net/t/1236383/looking-to-go-liquid they've been helping
Ram: Currently running G.Skill ram, is it ok to mix the Ram? G.SKill and Samsung? Again heard ups and downs iwht samsung products here.

Thanks Tarun!

samsung SSD and RAM are one of the best have a look at

SSD Click here
now i dont have to say anything about the M4 they are one of the best things in the market and

RAM Click here
ya but pairing the 1600 Mhz with the G.skill 1333 Mhz would not be a good idea use only the Samsung and anyways 8 GB RAM is enough for gaming the max RAM that used by games is around 6GB or so not more then that rolleyes.gif sell your current G.Skill RAMs or put it up on OCN for freebies biggrin.gif
other then that abou the WC the kit i suggested is the same thing rolleyes.gif only added some details m not pretty much into WC but i know a few basics and m learning from them a little more wink.gif
Hope that helped thumb.gif

Currently building a new rig myself and got those parts you mentioned. I'm only waiting for the release of i7 3770k and msi z77 then I'll decide which gpu to get, depending on price and availability of full coverage waterblock.

@OP If you plan on getting that water kit, there is a %5.1 promo code for that site. I favor Corsair psu myself and got the AX1200 (currently going for $218 AC/AR) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139014

Have fun with your build! Don't forget to get some Gentle Typhoons for your radiator!

buddy a 1200watts PSU is a overkill for a GTX 680 SLi a 850 watts to 900Watts PSU is good then enough

i agree, but for $218 and knowing that i'll be future proof and not worry about if it'll be enough power or not, i'd gladly spend $65 more.
