    Thats true, but the 6990 he is talking about is better :wink:

    Went on a small online shopping spree, sadly newegg wont deliver the case to my address but almost the rest of the build is on it's way.
    So I already had the Gigabyte G1 Assassin and the Intel i7 990x

    After browsing around on new egg and about $2000 later here is what I just ordered.
    CORSAIR Vengeance 24GB (6 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2000 (PC3 16000) Ram - (Overkill, I know but also future proof!)
    CORSAIR Professional Series Gold AX1200 1200 Watt PSU
    NZXT SEN-001LX Sentry LX Aluminum dual bay fan controller (Kind of regretting this now..)
    LG Black Super Multi SATA WH12LS30 LightScribe Support (OEM model but oh well, I have the parts)
    Two EVGA GeForce GTX 580 3072MB graphics cards. (Yes two)

    No hard drives yet, prices are a bit steep right now due to the floods in Thailand.

    I broke down and bought a 24gb SSD, I figured prices will only get higher from now on. At least for a while. So everything to get it (Running) is ordered.
    Cases are over rated anyways! :mrgreen:

    I didn't get a case. lol Newegg wont ship a case to my address, I'll have to find it elsewhere but the only place I've found that will ship it here wants like $60 more then newegg. Maybe Amazon?
    But the case I am trying to get is the Haf x nvidia edition.

    Now if you don't watercool these parts i will have to come to your house and steal them. It should be illegal to not WC any CPU over $700 and any GPU/MOBO over $300. From past experiences of motherboard i wouldn't go with anything beside EVGA(Yes they are expensive for a reason) top notch stuff.

    I am currently in Kuwait and due to customs issues on base I wont get water cooling until I come back to the states. I only plan on doing light gaming until I get back and no Oc'ing until I start water cooling.
