No problem on the post it took a lil to write but ive gotten so much help from this community it only feels right to help those in need.
I'll take a look at the other power supply. The PCP&C power supply I seemed to get great reviews despite it possibly being a bit loud! -it is a great power supply but the corsair is literaly almost the exact same psu(made by the same company seasonic[i think]) and the corsair actualy costs less.
I'll definitely put some more thought into the processor to make sure I get what I want. The consensus seems to be that the 9450s are a good choice. The new 45nm processors coming out later, will they require a new mobo than the 780i or 750i FTW? the new ones will require a different motherboard and i think it is a good idea to do some personal research on the cpu as the 100 bucks isnt money to be spent lightly and its good to know why your making a decision rather than assume others are right
Also, what is a lapping kit? I have no idea. >_< -lapping is flattening a connection between the cpu and hsf to create a better thermal connectivity and reduce temps
What is the "step-up" program? I've never heard of that. -i explained the step up program in my last post just reread
Good find on the sound card, that's a big price difference, but I've heard enough bad news about Creative's drivers to be interested in looking elsewhere. -i beleive its worth the price difference as its a much better sound card especialy if your buying speakers of that caliber.
I thought SLI doesn't have multi-monitor support? But I'll look into a smaller monitor with a faster response time!
-you can switch your setup between sli and multi moniter(1 card per moniter) with a program so you can sli while your gaming and then multi moniter when your doing research or going on the web and such, you could even watch two different pron videos at once ^_*
I think you misread, I changed from AS5 to MX-2, I'm hearing that MX-2 will cool slightly better and costs a tiny bit more. -both are good the AS5 gets better temps after its settled well argueable go with either youll be happy.
Again, thanks a ton for all your great input! I'd love to keep in touch and hear how your build is coming along as well. -i am going to start a build log once i start ordering parts going to do some severe modifications to case if i can scrounge up time, expect it to start in the next 2 months as money becomes available.
Also, that Samsung is nice (and has a lower response time) with a lower price tag... I'll have to do some more research -yep go with a samsung and you wont regret it really any of them works with 2ms response time and the 24"ers are not worth the price difference over 22"ers.
