The gtx 760 is more of a replacement for the gtx 660 ti. The gtx 760 does not have as many cores as the gtx 670.

As true as this is, it is only 3-5 fps per second slower then the 670.

Where do come up with this crap? Even with you using terrible sources like wikipedia, it clearly shows it doesnt have FASTER ram, and it's not the same card, it has less cudacores. It's a slower,different card, it's not debatable. Just look at the reviews.

MONITOR: Any suggestions for a 27" gaming at 1080p?
CASE: any good high air flow mid cases? was looking at cooler master.

Any other parts listed below I should reconsider replacing for better/greater benefits?

Thanks in advance! thumb.gif

1) That's a nice unit as a matter a fact, the ZT is a solid choice surprisingly. Definitely enough watts for two 760's.

2) As far as coolers go see if you can fit a H110 or Kraken X60 in your case. Temperatures will be lower than an H100i. Although I would take Newegg reviews with a grain of salt. Might just want to look into a regular H100 and get some nicer fans in Push/Pull. The H110 or X60 will be far superior units though,

3) The BenQ VA GW2750HM 27-Inch sells for $217.99 on Amazon.com. They have a nice reputation on here, I love my ASUS 27" but that's about $20 more than the BenQ

4) I like the Corsair 500R, Fractal Design Define R4, NZXT Phantom 410 Series to name a few (all can fit an H110 or X60 too)

You actually have yourself a really solid build, only thing I would consider is changing the Samsung 840 Series to a Sandisk Extreme 240GB SSD. You can get them for like $150 off of Amazon.com and they are as fast as the 840 Pro's. Besides that everything looks pretty solid, although I know right now on Newegg you can get G.Skill 2133MHz memory for $67.50 with discount so look into that.
