Budget:
2.5k

Expectations:
I've been searching for great desktop for gaming and I expect my money would be worth to spend on what digitalstorm can offer.

Usage:
Games like BF3, MMORPG's, Videos, Etc

Special Needs:
The games i'll plan should beplayable at ultra settings, I did select 2gpu=gtx570 1.2gb.. I'm just not sure if the 800 watts is good enuf, and the system memory are fine. I know games like BF3 would require powerful gpu, I would not be bothered If I can play it on High Settings too. Do I need to ask to OC it?

Saved Ticket #: 664557

Specifications:
I'm open to any suggestions.

Your build was great, but I did change psu to the 1050HX.  The 800W would be good enough but this gives you room to grow and has 7 year warranty.
 
Gave you overclocking stage 2 with the D14 cpu cooler, the best air cooler.  The two together with your cpu can easily handle the oc safely.
 
Check it out and Good Luck.Big%20SmileBig%20Smile

Welcome to the forums, lexogee.

Taking a look, you could feasibly upgrade to the GTX 570 2.5 GB for a little more bang for your buck, and stay within your budget (minus shipping cost, which would put it over by somewhere around $50, if you can swing that).

Otherwise, without your intended monitor resolution, it's hard to give more info on the video cards used. Two 570s will get you ultra settings on a non-3D 1920x1080 resolution monitor, if I'm not mistaken.

For that resolution you could almost get by with a single gtx 570 2.5GB card.  Two in sli would probably be overkill, but give you room to go 1920x1050 if you ever wanted.
