    I have a CyberPower from a few years ago. They promised a couple of things on the build they later reneged on, citing compatibility issues. But other than that, it's been a kick ass, rock solid box!!! ****************in screams with anything you throw at it

        Don't think you need a 2011 board for gaming, or 32gb of ram, and the Z506 is a ****************-tastic 5.1 system (I own one and there's hella cross-talk between the channels), but it looks like a killer rig. I'd probably go with an 1155 mobo and an i5 3570k, 16gb of RAM, and then get a second video card for CrossFire.

                    Overkill on the whole thing. I agree with the Rev. 3570K, 8gb ram (or 16gb if you must), SSD primary & HDD secondary, 660 ti is more than enough, Coolermaster 212+, I am a fan of the Coolermaster Cosmos cases, decent powersupply about 750w. Build it yourself!

                        I know that its overkill, but every PC i do buy is always overkill. My alienware was WAYYYY ahead of its time and lasted me for 10 plus years without a hitch until a while back.



                        But why not go overkill? Wont it just be better in the long run?

                            Reason I use 16gb is so I can run a RAMdisc with the last 8gb.



                            Kooter, what I mean is that the motherboard and processor you have selected are workstation quality- they support and do a lot of things that you'll never ever use unless you're doing programming or video editing. You're spending a lot of money on components you'll never ever ever use, when there are cheaper (yet still massively overkill) components out there that would let you put cash into other things that WILL net you a noticeable upgrade (second video card).
