im not the best at this stuff but i think with OCing it some it should do it. thumb.gif
im sure there are some better choices, but that is what i just threw together quickly, that i believe would do what he is looking for

I sure hope you didn't seriously recommend a 1300 watt power supply. What do you want to do, power the whole house through the computer? 2 GTX 680s don't need that sort of power, really. 850 watts is plenty, and that includes some headroom.

Ivy bridge has some improvement, but the review at MaximumPC said that "Sure, the performance enhancements on the x86 side of the aisle won’t exactly knock you on your tuchus, but they’re still decent. The upgrades to the graphics core, however, make Ivy Bridge more noteworthy."

So Sandy Bridge should be good. The improvements in computation power are okay, but they do cost most than a Sandy Bridge chip.

Maybe, instead of 2 GTX 680s, go with 3 used GTX 580s. They are not but like 300 each now if you buy them used.

This is very similar to my build, and I play BF3 on ultra on 3 screens with playable FPS. You could remove the SSD for the OS if you need to keep the budget low. $1500 GTX 680 Surround build (Click to show)

I think he should rethink the 3 monitors.

See, here is what I think. If he already has them, we can get in under budget. However, if he doesn't, maybe we could talk some sense into him. Really, unless he really needs the extra monitors, it is just slowing him down and costing him lots of money.

This is a build from scratch, right? If so wait for the Ivy Bridge version. It's not supposed to have huge performance increases and it's not a huge performance increase. It would be worth the wait for the IB version of the i5 (better memory controller).

Unless he is going 3 GTX 680s, then he probably isn't going to need that much power.

Edit: PSU calculator with 3 GTX 680s and a i7 3960x @ 5.0 and 1.5 vcore, 4 HDDs, 2 SSDs, a blu ray drive, and 6 high performance 120 mm fans only clocks in at 844 watts. Putt that at 900 just to have headroom.

not trying to start an argument, but if he will run 3 or 4 card setup a psu is not something u want to skimp on or cut close, i did that with these cards an psu that i have an i highly regret it. thats why i have a 1k coming in thursday. its always better to have a lot more then never enough, the psu is something i will never skimp on anymore.

I don't say skimp, no, but overshooting by a large amount is just bad judgement. I put in 3 GTX 680s and it still wasn't 900 watts, so I think he should be fine. And that was with a Hexacore system to boot. 100 watts would be okay, but anything over is just unneeded excess.

@ OP:
I would consider spending the full budget on the system itself, and worry about triple screen setups later on. Surround isn't a priority and you don't really want to cut back on cheaper components just to fit displays into the budget. As the system will end up horrendous, and will not meet upto the expectations of BF3 on Ultra.

Surround gaming with BF3 on Ultra you are really looking into the much higher end spectrum of h/w.

Buying a PSU that has a large overhead is fine, but it means nothing if the brand is pish. Do not mistake 1KW+ PSU's as quality units, from the likes of Enermax, Silverstone or Corsair yes. Just because you have headroom doesn't mean they won't crap out on you. Quality of the brand is far more important than the size of the PSU.

I've never heard of your upcoming PSU for example
