If only they had payment plans here in Canada. I played with their site, and I like what I see. Oh, well.

Here is what I am hoping to order in the next day or 2. The listing at the top of the page is the standard. If you scroll down you can see the changes I've made.

not a bad rig, uber expensive, lol. if that's what you get you wont have any issues w/ alot of games out nor the ones coming out. Really as I've been playing on and w/ mine I'm starting to want to phase out my consoles, games are cheaper run smoother and a wider selection and fully customizable to my needs as I need them.

Thats a pretty sweet setup Rhynox. I havent built a computer in YEARS. IS there any reason to have both the Realtek 7.1 and the Creative 5.1 surround do you use both ?

The Realtek is built in to the motherboard. I hate on board sound, so I got a sound card. Just something "small" since I always use headphones.

my next upgrade is probably going to be a different CpU cooler from the one that came with mine, also wanting to up to the amd 7900 series GPU's if I could afford it right now i'd go for 2 7970's in crossfire w/ a new MoBo since my current one isn't SLI/Crossfire capable but my case can hold it all (NZXT Source 210 w/ window mod)

Now i have my sound driven by my onboard it's not bad at all since it can handle 5.1, really Asus has it down w/ their on board systems. Also seeing you're going to run w8 over 7, 8 isn't the friendliest for OC'ing as I've found out over the past month.

I'm not much of an OC'er myself, but the ASUS software for this mobo, and the mobo itself are both Windows 8 tuned, I can make BIOS adjustment from within Windows, and can even flash the BIOS while in standby mode.

I love the 7970 Vapor-X, GREAT bang for your buck. Pure power for dollar... nothing else beats it. When they go down in price, I will probably pick up another one for X-Fire Smile

Nice thing about getting this card right now... I got Crysis 3, and BioShock Infinite for free!

One thing I just found out about (I was a Nvidia boy before this), is that X-Fire duo almost doubles your output, where as SLI is only 60-70% increase.

Yeah I get it. I have Realtek 7.1 HD built in also on my non-gaming computer. It sounds great with speakers but I have to use an external
DAC/ headphone amp when I use my better quality headphones.

so far the 7750 2GB Ghost Edition has been a nice card compared to the crap it came w/ lol even though for entry level it wasn't too bad (HD6450)

I haven't had speakers hooked up to my PC in over 13 years lol. I'm a headset guy, since I usually am using Ventrilo, TeamSpeak, etc. while gaming.

Yeah I been heavily into headsets for music for a while , got like a dozen or so now strictly for music so I can Rock out late at night. Lately Ive been using a combination of AKG K142 semi-open and a pair of Creative Aurvana Live aka the reincarnation of the Denon AH-D1001. I have a couple of DAC and headphone amps the detail is amazing I'll even use regular headsets for gaming on my PS# and the good ones are like a different experience from my speakers

I use my PS3 headset w/ my Vent, TS, and mumble but have only chat coming through the headset. Also I would get a wifi music bridge to go to my pre-amp on my home stereo but in the end I'd rather keep them separate.
Home Stereo is a Rotel Pre-Amp and a 100w x 6 channel amp w/ Polk Monitor 40's on the fronts, still working on getting my center and rear channels setup
