Default Re: need help buliding and advice

If its mainly for gaming dont bother with the I7 just get the I5 as it gives no advantage to a gamer for that extra cost.

Again if for gaming you wont need 16gb ddr, just get faster 8gb ddr3 1866mhz.

And then put the extra money towards running 2xGTX 760 in sli as this will give much greater graphic performance (on par with the titan!!)

i have a 256ssd and a 1tb hhd, im only using 60gb on the sdd.

yes you can easily run two monitors, yes that cooler will be great for overclocking, and yes that psu is enough.

Hope this helps....
