Been waiting for my tax refund to come in and finally got it. Going to build myself a new PC, currently running on one I built back in high school with an intel 2 duo core. So it is a little lacking.

I play a lot of EVE where I multibox (8-10 clients at a time) so this is my current plan:

Intel i7 3930k
Asus Rampage IV Extreme
32gb Ram (4x8gb) (Maybe Patriot not too sure yet had thought about being a little more spendy and getting the ripjaw 2133 ones)
3x evga 660 gtx (unless i find a good deal on a 670 then might be one of those and 2 660s)
corsair 1050w psu
256 gb ssd (not sure what)
2 tb sata 3 HD (once again not sure what)
cheap blu ray burner

Casw: Corsair 800d (although I secretly want to wait for the 900d its sexy)

Then there is the cooling, I had thought about being lazy and doing just a corsair H100 but figure I might just go for full water cooling. Kind of why I signed up here try and read it up on it.

Will be running triple monitors, currently on two viewsonic 24" led, trying to decide if I want to just buy one more and go with that or maybe do a portrait/lanscape/portrait set up with 20/30/20 monitor. Still up in the air.

Would love some feedback!

Don't do 3 660s. Narrow memory bus will hurt you at resolutions that high. It might not be so bad initially but as newer games come out a 256bit or higher will yield much better results. Get two 7950s or 3 Tahiti 7870s instead.

If you really want Nvidia I'd say two 670s.

For SSD Crucial m4 or any of the Samsung 800 series are great.

The rest looks pretty good

I had originally thought about just getting a 680 with 4gb of ram. Is there a specific stand out in radeon card manufactures these days? EVGA seems to be the best for nvidia is there an equivalent for the radeon?

Looking up what you suggested and Sapphire, XFI, Powercolor, MSI, and ASUS seem to be up there? But I am not too sure.

They won't be run in SLI/Crossfire just going to have each one power a monitor. Think things will run smoothly that way?

And any suggestion on the monitor situation
