Re: build questions
TBH I think you're wasting some money with the build. Vin is right the extreme edition is not worth it at all.
Why not go sandybridge with a 2500k/2600k? You're getting 0 performance increase with that chip, and until consoles come out that are sporting 6 core chips I doubt you will in the time that you own the chip.
Also why the H60 instead of the 80/100 on such an intense rig?
You could cut that chip, and board, and get a damn good sandy bridge WITH a 7970 and blow your current rig outta the water, or get a second 480 for sli.
