Forgot about the Operating system. Windows 7 64 bit should be sufficient enought right? Is there performance difference between Pro vs. Ultimate?

OP, lets figure out what screens you have as you've got three already they may not be bad for what you're looking to do.

For the people recommending 1440p monitors, why would OP just go for the $400 microcenter type screens?

OP, it's not really about advantages, it's about what you want and how much money you're looking to spend.

There are tradeoffs to any choice you make, (when isn't there? lol), if you want three screens and good looking graphics you're going to want to get a second card at minimum; unless you don't mind turning down some graphic quality settings in your games.

Would still like to see more detail regarding what games you'll be playing, what graphics quality settings are absolute "must haves" for you etc.

The NZXT Phantom 630 is a strong case that has a ton to offer, great air cooling and would make a good water cooling rig with minimal effort, have you looked for other watercooling builds in this case? You'll want to get a good idea on any setbacks you'll run into with the various myriad of radiators that are out there of varying thicknesses etc.

NZXT Phantom 630 has 3 200mm fan spots so you'd get a ton of air cooling in this case and probably not need watercooling depending on your needs in temps and overclocking.

Edit: Win 7 64bit will be perfect, if you haven't bought it yet just go for PRO, ultimate doesn't provide much of anything over pro for gaming... max ram for both version is 192GB which you won't be able to get to anyways lol.

From my understanding the parts you picked are fine!

The only thing i would change is the memory for something that isnt 100$ for 1600 ram that can be had for 29.99$

Power supply and gfx card is fine

Power supply=If you plan on getting more than one card in the near future keep it corsair has a great reputation and warranty enought said.

graphics card=I like nvidia, call me a fanboy if you like but thats my choice simply put. 680 is still a great card!

With that said if you only plan on keeping one card I would get this especially if you got the white case!

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817116012 <-- 129.99 free shipping 850w gold rated!

If you got the black or gunmetal one id get
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139011&Tpk=hx%20850 <--I have had this power supply for 3 years and not a problem out of it! And once again corsair warranty and support is awesome!

As for memory I would get
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231585 <--69.99 with a additional 15% off and runs at 2400 speed at 1.65 gskill also has a great reputation and warranty!

If you not into black and blue these are great sticks also
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231460 <-- 57.99 better speed and timings at that speed than the dominators

You'd probably be fine with Home Premium honestly. Outside of sounding cooler I don't believe the more expensive additions will do anything for you. Let me know if you'd like some assistance with custom W7 installs via PM.

It also has a Windows XP mode and has better multi-language support IIRC. Don't believe any of these should be applicable to you OP.

 

Edit: Post from future.

Not trying to bash but incorrect, (not that it technically matters as 64GB is more than overkill biggrin.gif), it's 192GB for both pro and ultimate... but you're correct the main differences are bitlocker and extra language support.

3X Viewsonic 23" IPS panel

Games: All games really, FPS, RTS, etc.. Would like to avoid lag to.
Dont' forget video/photo editing which having the IPS panel helps.

I have considered WC'ing in the future that's why I got a full tower but not jumping in right now. Starting off with a standard water cooler to begin with.

Ohh please give advise or tips on installation. The only mod i've made to a computer was adding Dram to my laptop and changing out the Drive.
