You can definitely find cheaper prices on half of those items on other sites.

Why not fit a SSD into your budget?

Solid build. Never heard of your psu tho. I would switch to Corsair.

Have you considered getting a gtx 480 instead of the 5970?

Yea. I was looking at a lot of benchmarks and the 5970 beats the GTX 480. It uses less power and produces less heat.
My budget is $3000. If you could provide some links then I'll try to work in a SSD.

mobo only has 1 year warranty....

might want to pick this combo instead
http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboD...t=Combo.434526

and about that psu i dont know... i rather pick a good 850w from corsair then a 1100w for apevia
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817139009

the mobo you selected (mine aswell) supports sata 6gb/s why not getting this hdd?
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822136533

i dont see the point in getting 2000 ram when 1600 can do the job...

Like what was said above, change the PSU to a good quality one. I'd recommend either the Corsair TX850 or the HX850 if you want a slightly better unit with modular cables. Also consider 750 - 850W units from the likes of SeaSonic, Antec and Enermax.

Apevia are not exactly reputable in the PSU business and generally don't produce good quality units. Brands such as SeaSonic, Corsair, Antec and Enermax on the other hand do, and also offer excellent customer service too.

The last thing you want is your new $1000+ system being permanently damaged due to a cheap low quality PSU.

Corsair TX850:

Alright. One question.

1. How well will this perform as a monitor? http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...srkey=46UX600U

That's what I like to hear. I wish I could go for an Nvidia setup and get the 3d Vision package, but the GTX 480 can't compare to the 5970.
