    Two over clocked high end graphics cards? Are you preparing for the next two decades or something

  • 8 cores and two OC 7970s... not a bad build.

    The Cooler Master HAF XB is a great case if you want something with decent cooling but with a design that still makes it easy to swap out parts. The PSU should probably be around the 800W-1000W mark (maybe overkill, but good to have if you plan to add/upgrade). An SSD paired with Windows 8 will rip through start-up and shutdown times, but if you still like Windows 7 just check everything is good to go with your UEFI and other disks from an old, non UEFI system (seems obscure, I know, but if you get a UEFI mobo and try to use an MBR based disk the UEFi will go apeshit and activate legacy modes and the like). From what I've heard and used, Sandisk has cheap SSD's with solid controllers at a reasonable price. Good luck with your build!

    [url=http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139010]Ok will be a good psu, though if you can afford the 850 get it. It will provide more overhead.[/url] Best cooling solution would be something like the corsair h100i. Its a closed loop water cooler so it does a great job of keeping the cpu cool [url=http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820239045]A really good ssd.[/url] Though you could always go with the Samsung 880, and corsair makes good ssd's as well. Cases a really a personal preference, [url=http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811139005]Pretty good case, tad on the expensive side but has plenty of room inside and room for good cooling solutions.[/url] Though if you dont really want a $160 case, you could always go with the fractal design define r4, and an h100 if you were to get it should be able to fit inside the case.

  • Cooler Master's HAF series cases have a lot of space and have great airflow.

    Well for PSU, anything between a 500-750 watt PSU. SSD is optional, but if you really want one, then probably get a 120GB SSD or below. You may want to check newegg for any parts for your preference. http://www.newegg.com/ Also what do you mean by CPU cooling? Like water cooling or a 3rd party cooler?
