Either Asus Maximus V Gene µATX or AsRock Fatal1ty Z77 Professional-M.
Which one do you guys favor?

After the updates I came up with this setup, http://pcpartpicker.com/p/Nqty.
going with the Asus GTX680 DirectCU II in my opinion is the best solution, how about you guys, what would you change?

I ended up with 1963.00€, notice that I need to buy the parts inside Europe because of the taxes.

Have you ignored all of the advice given?

Your choice of parts are terrible, overpriced, and a complete waste of money.

Look at Ramzinho's build and my slightly revised version. Going any other route is plain nonsensical.

Parts in Ramzinho's build aren't matching, quiet or cheap/purchable in Finland.
And I already chose the ssd, optical drive, cpu and cpu cooler from hes build. And I thank you guys for helping especially Ramzinho but i'm demanding when it comes to 2k computer lol. tongue.gif

The latter setup with only 2 7970's seems to be very interesting setup indeed.
I do need more SSD space and the psu is way overpowered so that adds up price but I would save by going i5...
Too many options, no idea which way to go lol.

And the thermaltake's case doesn't look that elegant compared to Fractal Design but thats least of my problems at the moment.tongue.gif

I need to do some googling on 7970 and gtx680 benchmarks thought.

Edit: And the build is missing all the extra hoses and cpu cooler which adds up the price quite high.
