Nice, but there must be cheaper 7970s, no? 480 sounds pretty high unless those are Lightnings.
EDIT: Maybe get these

So basicly what we (myself, 32oz, and B!0HaZard) said, minus the stronger cooler, optical drive, and a different SSD. Sounds about right. If you're going to OC, I really would get one of the coolers we suggested though.
If you want us to ignore dlee7283 and just help tweak the rig so it's right for you, tell us and we'll help, just lay down some guidelines like what you would prefer, more indepth than the OP. Brand preference, Case preference, etc.

I like how running BF3 on ultra at 1600p is somehow mainstream in your world like the game is less fun on high somehow...-PSU is under warranty, even if it goes out after a year he can get one just as good as the TX750 by that time for cheaper around 75 bucks.
-RAM is dirt cheap, you were the one suggesting overpriced cooling and u still had the nerve to put a 8gb kit instead of 16gb even with 2 grand to spend LOL. You had overpriced fans in your budget over more system ram, I mean that is a huge *** right there
-Not everyone thinks like you do, you are being OCD about stuff just to be OCD. Also couldn't you be more original and maybe saved the guy a 100 bucks or something over ordering at places beside newegg?
No, I put in a 128 because that is all that is needed to match my suggested rig's price. It also was a good way to show how horrible your suggestion really was for the money.
So buy cheap things now, replace when they die. I'm noticing a pattern with you. You do know that buying good things right away saves money in the long run right?
Considering the H80 can cool as well as a NH-D14, or an H100, It isn't very overpriced for someone who wants to OC. As for the case fans, they match what is currently in the HAF XM. That was the sole reason for picking those. You don't even need those fans really, since when you put the H80 on the back you get the 140mm to put on the door. Just figured I'd fill out the case.
As for 16GB... what does he need 16GB for? He isn't, or hasn't said he was, doing anything that would require that. The Samsung chips OC like mad should he want them to, and it leaves room open for more if he wants it later. I don't know why you're going on about this?

MicroCenter for CPU/MB at minimum, and whatever else is cheaper. Newegg for the rest.Edited by KyadCK - 9/8/12 at 8:24pm
