Also the i5 3570k is only $1 more expensive so I'm going with it! wink.gif

I don't believe you can use the dedicated sound card together with the onboard sound, if that's what you mean. Same thing with the audio interface. Only one at a time.

And good choice with the 3570k. It's a much better processor than the 2500k and FX 8350. Also, I'd look into changing your motherboard for the UD3H. Aside from that everything looks great. thumb.gif

Correct you cant use Sound card/ HDMI and onboard audio at the same time. '

Most motherboards now a days do 5.1/7.1 anyways.

All I have to say is i'm far from a fanboy, i've got a 2500k, GTX 580 computer right now. Good luck with that.

6 The build is fine, don't let trapix coach you into buying amd the fanboy

3.) Benchmarks tend to show the performance capability of something.. hence why the pro version is $40 more.. And the 120GB Kingston HyperX has higher random read, write, Sustained Sequential Read, and Sustained Sequential Write.. than the Samsung 120gb 840.

6.) I've got a 2500k and gtx 580 computer, you're the fanboy. I'm merely suggesting the best computer this guy can get. And by my count, the computer with a better cpu, gpu, power supply, sound card, monitors, and SSD.
FOR $100-$200 less than the build he picked out.
