Alright so I've been saving up to build a new PC. I built my first PC around the time the first i7s' were reasonable in price about 2 years ago. Served me great but it's showing age and I'm also looking into buying a new monitor. The newest rage seems to be these korean 27 inch IPS 2560x1440 monitors that go for around 400$ imported through Ebay. I'm either looking at upgrading when Haswell launches or this coming fall. My budget for the PC itself is around 1,200$-1,400$ not including harddrives/ssd and desktop memory, I already bought those components. I prefer Nvidia, so my two options seem to be a GTX 680 or 2 SLI GTX 670s'. Let's make no bones about it, I'm looking for a high end PC that can play all games currently at their max settings at that native resolution for this monitor. What do you think I should go with? I'm not really familiar with SLI so there's that.
Current theoretical build:
Whatever Haswell CPU is out
Whatever mobo that are comparable with Haswell that has SSD caching
Corsair 600T Case
The case seems like the biggest hang up. I currently have a full tower and I've never had to deal with building in a mid tower case. SLI with two big cards like that seems dicey. I plan on adding 4 side panel low rpm fans so the heat shouldn't be an issue. I would just go for a full tower but the only good ones for a reasonable price seem to be cooler master and I'm tired of LEDs on my PC, and they all have fucking LEDs.
Yeah PCs. Anyone got any input?
