Hi guys i'm planning a new build and to make sure it's right, i came here so you can help me if you detect any problem .

CPU: Intel Core i5-2500k
Mobo: Asus Sabertooth P67 (REV 3.0)
GPU: GTX 570 DIRECTCUII (planning to sli it later)
RAM: 8gb (2x4gb) G.skill ripjaws X 1600
Case: Coolermaster HAF X
Cooler: Corsair H70
PSU: Antec High Current Gamer 900W
another 1tb hdd (already have 1tb and 250gb filled lol)

I plan in the long run to water cool it (need to learn first i never done it before)
Also a good recommendation of a PSU for gtx 570 sli? because that one is not modular and i want one to be modular
also any recommendation?

thanks in advance

sounds great, can't complain about 570, but have you considered a 480 or 560 ti, just something to think about before you commit to a 570, and the 900w psu.... wow! make completely sure you need that much before you purchase it

I don't know what's available in Uruguay, but if you can afford the 900W Antec High Current Gamer, then I recommend looking at the SeaSonic X-750. It's fully modular (there are no hardwired cables at all), and it's basically a top-of-the-line unit.

Well i dont really know if 750w can hold sli 570, and i dont want to run near its maximum output, also i will overclock so i need a bit of extra watts.
i dont know if a 560 ti will do what i need, gaming at the closest near to 60 fps in 1920x1080 at max graphics, also probably when i get the 2nd 570 i will get too 2 monitors to do sourround, then i will buy the whole waterblock for cpu and both gpu's.

it's a long journey to come but i will need a lot of money lol. Also i will probably buy all in USA because doing this build on Uruguay is just insanely expensive and not all items are available.

buy this in USA and bring them back with taxes = around 1500-1700
buy this here (and not all i want) with taxes = 2000+

So not, Uruguay is not a option for me, this IVA (tax) is rated at 22% and i dont want to pay that much

By recommending the X-750, I'm not saying that just any 750W will be enough. Instead, I'm saying that the X-750 in particular is enough (it's actually more than enough).

so... you wouldn't consider a 480? also a 560 ti is not that far off from a 570 it is within 2-3% it just can't do tri sli...

Looks pretty good overall.

Only thing I can say is I think the Antec TP series is better than the High Gamer series. The TP series is also has a modular design. It has some cables fixed (like 24 pin mobo connector / 8 pin mobo connector / 2x 6+2 pin connectors) but you will use those anyway with a standard setup. The best truely modular PSU I know are the AX series from corsair, and they come in 750w 850w or 1200w and also more expensive (gold rated).

Also if water cooling is really awesome if you plan to do some heavy OC'ing.

Then may I recommend a power supply that costs $159.99 shipped? It's the SeaSonic X-750 which is a top-of-the-line 750W power supply:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817151087

Not only can it handle your entire build with two GTX 570s in it, but it's also the best 750W power supply on the market (Corsair's AX750 is identical, but it costs more at the moment).
