    Sorry, Dave, you posted this after the sabbath started. I will have to figure out some time to get out there. I'll be in touch with you.

    Dev, that mouse looks great. If things don't work out with Taz, I just may go for that one instead. Thanks, guys!

    Computer Upgrade Complete! 2x NVidia GTX 770 in SLI. Nice Benchmarks from 3DMark13. BTW: Also picked up a nice 27" ASUS Monitor, games running great and look great.

    Jason, I'd say wait a bit. Maxwell vid cards should be out by the end of the year or early next year.

    What kind of budget do you have?
    The Haswell 4770K CPU is still quite nice match that up with a nice ASUS Mobo and your on your way.

    I can go fairly high, Taz. I'm looking for something decent that will last me at least four years. This one almost made it, but the graphics card died on me and I had to replace it with a cheap piece of crap.

    Here's a nice site to work on your build. This site even does the shopping around for you are you can select one merchant like Newegg. You might have some of these parts already or prefer different ones. Let me tell you about some of my choices and why.

    Motherboard, new socket LGA2011 on the ASUS Sabertooth is awesome. Looks great with a armor appearance and military grade specs. I have this board on the LGA1150 socket which supports the 4770K Haswell CPU and it runs great.

    Power Supply, recommend 850 min. and full modular is nice. Corsair or ANTEC would be my choices.

    I chose the Air 540 case but you probably don't need a new one since you have the Lian Li. CPU Cooler is quite nice and would cut down on noise.
    Anyway play around and see what you can do. This Motherboard and CPU will last ya a few years, and the Graphics Card is a personal choice but the 770 would handle any new games coming out.

    Here's a sample build I just did.
    BTW: Here's my current Fragbox. http://pcpartpicker.com/b/OrT

    Thanks, Taz. That should give me a good start. I can't use my case because my old rig will probably be handed down to my nephews, so that my sister doesn't have to buy new computers.

    I have a two cases not being used.
    Lian Li PC 60(Linda's Black Case) and a Antec Mini P-180 (New)

    Both could be used for nice builds.
    The Mini Motherboards are just as good as the ATX ones. Let me know if your interested.

    I would probably take you up on the offer, Taz, but I'm looking at a combo offer from NewEgg on a decent case. The build I'm coming up with is close to what you had for recommendations, so thanks. Now if hotmail would just start working again for me...

    WoW, that's going to be a rocking system.
    SSD-500GB, I know you're going to have a couple of Terabytes HD's to store all your games, music, movies, etc. Only game I have on my SSD is GW2, rest are on the WD Black.

    Now take your time putting it together and use good wire management. Take a couple pics and post those babies. ;)
