also are you buying the i7 980x only for gaming?
Okay cool, and I got the 980x free from someone who represents Intel.

G.SKILL Trident+ 2000MHz
Corsair Dominator GT
etc...
So are you saying i should get these?

They look cheaper and just as good as those dominators....

Anyways like i said, I am definitely going to change my PSU, 650 ,750,or 850w? And also what brand?
And isn't the WD faster because of the 64MB cache and for SATA III? Or am i wrong here?
Also, what monitor should i get if the dell u2311h isn't ideal for me?

650watt. If you plan on going SLI then 850watt.
here are some good 850watt power supplies

Corsair HX850, XFX BE 850W, SeaSonic S12D 850W, SeaSonic M12D 850W, Silverstone Strider Plus 850W

For 1 480 though 650watt is more than enough.

Edit: I already gave you a list of 650watt power supplies.

Okay, and as far as the monitor goes, what should i get? At least 23", at least 1920x1080, and under $350. And which is overall the fastest? WD black 1TB vs Samsung f3 1tb?
