Ah perfect thanks a lot! You've been an enormous help

Over all PC build looks great. The HAF full towers can accommodate a 360 up top and a 120 no nod 240 moded in the bottom.

For WC parts Whats is your budget your are willing to spend? Also ill provide a pic of my rig. It wasnt the finished product cause I took this while leak testing but it should give you a good idea about what to expect.

As per budget it's not too big an issue (800$ ish) but I'd prefer to spend 3-400 now and then add the rest later. I was thinking perhaps buy the following now and then the rest later.

Swiftech MCP655™ 12 VDC Pump

EK-Supreme HF - Acetal

XSPC RX360

PrimoFlex Pro LRT White Tubing - 7/16in. ID X 5/8in. OD (12 feet or so)

XSPC Single 5.25" Bay Reservoir (Alu Front)

Not sure how many barbs I would need for this???

Total should be around 340$ with enough fittings.

And then later I could add the water blocks when I decide to water cool the video cards as well. And at that point I could get the addition 120/240 Rad as well.

Looks just like my build except I didn't go with a full bay res. For barbs you would need 6 barbs because the pump should come with 2 plastic ones if i am not mistaken.

those are some nice parts

why tri-slil just to say its there
2 cards would be plenty, or wait till the end of the month and get you a 590
1 590 would do anything you could want I would imagine and then you only need 1 water block instead of 3 for gpu's

also in the forsale section of this forum there is a 980x process for 599 and a rampage III for a nice price also

might want to look the sale section over a little

if your going to go for it. dont get the rasa (its a great block) but since your doing this up right just go on and get the ek supreme hf block

1000 watt supply is plenty 1200 more than enough
theres a 1000 watt modular supply in the forums also

I am going with the EK Supreme HF =] I went with the 1200 more so that I have a ton of head room if I ever decide to expand. As per the Tri-SLI I'd be willing to go with a different setup if I knew for certain I would be yielding as much or more performance at the same or lower cost. I personally am not familiar enough to make that judgment though, so I would be at the mercy of the experience of others.
