I wouldn't bother with a 1200W PSU, even with a pair of 6970's, you should be fine with a 700-750W PSU. Other than that, a pretty solid build ! Any reason your going with the HAF 932 over the HAF X ?

Very solid, future ready build. I agree with the PSU BTW. 1200w PSU is a lot. Just get a quality 750-850w PSU and it will be fine. Let me know when you need my address and you can send it to me.

Wow...I think your brother would definitely appreciate the Gran Turismo wheel and xbox controller as an add-on. What did he do to deserve this masterpiece?!? The only thing lacking in the build is the monitor. Why spend so much money on everything else and spend only $200 on a monitor?

Very nice build. As futureproof as can be in this day and age. Tell him to add a few monitors.

Increasing GPU's give diminishing returns though

Still wouldnt bother with 1200. Antec do a very nice 850W unit (I believe that its called the HPC or something to that effect) which would be perfect for Tri-Fire. NZXT also do a very good line of 80-Plus Gold units too.

And by folding, he means running [email protected] on it

No need for 2600k for gaming only, period.

Thrustmaster T500 is overprice and overhype. No shifter is a big nono (opinion)if you sporting the clutch. Logitech G27 is half the price or the Driving Force GT if you just want the basic.

Wow great build! I have a HAF-X really like mine!

Wow prices seem high but i guess thats in melborne ? For what your paying for the 6970,s i would spend a little more and get the gtx 580,s ( just my opinion)
