Hey guys,
I'm posting to see if anyone has any suggestions for my soon to be new rig, as the title states I'm going to be using the pc for high end gaming, a little bit of streaming and alot of editing media (Video and Music).

my main concerns -
2x Gtx 670's or 1x 680?
8GB enough or should I go (2x8GB)

RIG as follows

RAM – G.Skill Ripjaws Z F3-2400C10D-8GZH 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 $129
Mobo – MSI Z77A-GD65 Motherboard $229
SSD – OCZ Vertex 4 256GB SSD $324
HDD – Western Digital Caviar Black 2TB WD2002FAEX $215
GPU – 2x MSI GeForce GTX 670 Power Edition 2GB OC $998
PSU – Corsair AX850 Gold Power Supply $245
Cooler – Corsair Hydro Series H100 CPU Cooler $159

Cheers for any suggestions guys.

Do you want something more powerful than this in M-ITX? Possible w/ the new ASUS mobo and the Bitfenix prodigy.
