    Will be placing the order next week, and have this build in mind :

    Intel Core i7 3930k (6 Core)

    ASUS Rampage IV Formula or Sabertooth X79?

    Corsair AX850 PSU

    Corsair Dominator GT 2133Mhz 4x4GB (Should i get the fans?)

    ASUS GTX 680 DirectCU (2G:cool: OR EVGA GTX 680 (4G:cool: ?

    ORRRR

    Should i get the -

    ASUS GTX 670 Direct CU or the EVGA GTX 670 4GB?

    (mostly for gaming and rendering on a dual monitor setup 24" and a 23")

    Corsair H100 water cooler.

    Cooler Master Cosmos 2 Chasis

    1 x 256 GB OCZ Vertex 4 SSD and 2 x 1 TB WD Black.

    The graphics card is the main thing that i am confused about.

    Spanks in advance :p :troll:

    Why not a dual SSD in Raid setup? ( if you are shelling out so much, might as well go crazy! :D )

    From what I've read online, the asus overclocks better and the EVGA runs cooler due to an improved cooler design.

    Don't need that much speed.

    I do have a budget though. And everything that I have listed almost borders on it.

    Didn't quite get the second part of your post... :p

    Well in my previous rig I had 16 gigs as well.. And it was never fully utilized. Thus only 16 gigs.. Maybe more In The future.
