Also, do you think that the 550W supply would be sufficient? I'm still not sure how to gauge what supply would be required for a system. Thanks!!

Oh yes. I overlooked that about the USB, Get a 3.0 supporting case. They atleast charge phones much faster biggrin.gif

Yes 550w is more than enough for that setup. Also, you can look into the GTX 670 ASUS DC-2 4GB if you want it to be much quieter than the reference design cooled card I have above.

The Shimian monitor I have on the list, aswell as the Crossover 27Q, Catsleap 27", ect.. are basicly the same screens that Dell will charge you $800+ for.

They are beautiful, 27" IPS 2560x1440 goodness. I love my Crossover.. Out of all my purchases, It's my best one.

Thanks for your suggestions! I'll look into local prices for those; going off what you've shown it'll be a little bit out of my price range however.
