Builds.pdf 662k .pdf file

Looking to build this over the summer. This is going to be my first computer to build myself. Looking for tips on motherboard and graphics combinations. I'm hoping to crossfire with another 7770 in the future, but also I'm wondering what is the best combo for Motherboard, Processor, and graphics card? I want to use this computer to play Planetside 2, and to work with GIS, MIS, autocad, and other rendering and mapping softwares.

I vote you up your GPU if you're planning on doing rendering. Crossfire 7770 doesn't sound like a solid idea either.

The 960T has a very high chance to unlock to 6 cores - I have actually done a few of them and they all worked !
