Good idea on the 670's the 690 and most dual GPU cards (590, etc.) have issues from what I've seen. Also, with a budget of $2000, you'd never be able to get a second 690, because not only is the 690 itself $1000 a piece, but i think you need a high end motherboard that can do quad SLI just to run it, and that'll run up the budget as well.

Good luck to you though, it looks great, cant wait to see pics! thumb.gif

Okay, I'm going to have to say no to the OCZ agility SSD - I've heard bad things and read bad things about OCZ and SSD. Some say it was fixed with FW but I wouldn't take a chance. Just grab a crucial 128gb for $79.99 from all the deals going on.

Also, are you planning on having any water cooling done in the future? If so, the Phantom may be a bit small. I know I went from the Antec 900 to the 1200 and I still feel like I could use more room tongue.gif

Other than that, looks decent.

Other thoughts: 4gb Sli 670s? Are you planning on using more than 1 monitor?

Keyboard: make sure it is backlit
Mouse: go out and feel them, make sure they are comfortable to hold and ergonomic.

Link to the SSD? And yes next Summer I will Watercool in a Switch 810. Also, I am getting the 4GB because I am doing NVIDIA Surround.

damn... I wish i could afford a GEEK CAVE... no siriously tho, this is my jelous face biggrin.gif ... cant wait to see what you do with it .............. oh yah and just to make you smile... subbed

ps... I dont know if you follow any of the big reviewers like motherboards.org or tiny tom logan, but OCZ is a bad idea, as even these guys will tell you 99.8% of OZC drives fail after the first 6 months to a year, im preaty shure that ocz drives almost have a higher failure rate than MSI motherboards...
