I think Corsair just released a Titanium rated PSU... sounds like it'd fit right in on this build.

Oops... That build was actually a bit of my current build and what I plan on upgrading to. I forgot to swap the Win7 for Win8 tongue.gif

Is buying more than you need to sell it later insurance fraud? I don't know, but if it was some grey area-thing I'd load up on SSD's, HDDs, some RAM as well perhaps. Those are components that, at least from my experience, are easy to sell with less losses and are more justifiable for the insurance than getting 2 motherboards or something like that tongue.gif

Here is what I came up with so far. I want the most of my money with this build even though its alot of money to just throw around. Again, I have a 24in 1080p monitor, 2 120 SSD's. I also have a DVD drive lol. I like the idea of a professional case, with good temps and acoustics.

I have second thoughts about the memory. Anyone have any suggestions on that? What about my PSU?

Power Supply: EVGA SuperNOVA 1000 P2 1000W 80+ Platinum Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply ($210.46 @ Amazon)

My opinion:
- DDR3 - 2133 is overkill, especially since you said you weren't into overclocking all that much (I'm going to get flamed for that on these boards but it's just my opinion tongue.gif ). 1866 (or 1600 depending on price / speed ratio) is fine. I would also suggest getting a 2x 8GB kit, leaves room for more if you ever need it (you never know) . I wouldn't overthink the brand either, same timings and same speed mean pretty much the same performance regardless of the brand. Get the stuff that looks good to you thumb.gif

- PSU, not sure if that's that awful EVGA PSU but I would go for a Seasonic, Corsair, BeQuiet (these are brands I have good experiences with and can generally recommend, there are others, look in the PSU section of this board ). I haven't kept up with the latest news so can't tell you much more.

- The WD Blacks are reliable and pretty fast (for 7200rpm) HDDs. BUT, they make quite a bit of noise IMHO. If you have a lot of SSD space and will only use the HDD for storage (documents, pictures, videos, stuff that doesn't really need the speed) then I would advice looking at the Seagate Barracuda 7200.14 or some other WD (I kind of like the Greens, low price, quiet and low power consumption but they only run at 5400 rpm.) . If you do need some throughput then go for the blacks.

- For the case: I would spend a good amount of money on something high-quality with good acoustic performance and that you really like to look at. There are more brands than you think. The fractal Design is definitely a nice minimalistic case though. Nanoxia makes some silent cases in the same style as well, might be worth a look.
Don't forget some nice quiet case fans (BeQuiets, Noiseblockers, Noctua... I can't tell you good case fans because I only have rad fans ) ! You would be amazed how easy and enjoyable it is getting a near-silent PC that doesn't run at laptop-speeds thumb.gif . Frankly, now I'm thinking of it, a case with the sound proofing of an antec p180 (still have one, loved it except for the non-existant space behind the motherboard) is hard to find nowadays...

I like the suggestions so far but what did you decide on for a monitor? 1440 or by 2 more of your Asus monitors? may need to adjust some of the rig to accommodate the price.
