Hey, this is my first time building a computer. I'm fairly tech-savvy though, and I'm mostly confident in my parts. Just posting them to see if there's anything I can improve on. I'm trying to keep the price under $1600.

APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE:Today or tomorrow. Have to take advantage of the Independence Day sale.

SYSTEM USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT:Gaming, internet, text processing.

PARTS NOT REQUIRED: Keyboard, DVD-R, Speakers, monitor, HDD

PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: Newegg

PARTS PREFERENCES: Full Tower

OVERCLOCKING:Maybe, though most likely not. Not confident enough to OC.

SLI:Yes, two-way.

MONITOR RESOLUTION: 1025x768 at the moment, though I'd like reccomendations for a new monitor.

Other Comments:Cooling is important, and my greatest concerns are the case (wil it all fit?) and the power supply (does it have the right connectors?).

swap the PSU for a corsair 750tx or 850tx and the graphics cards for 4890's unless you play mirrors edge a lot.

oh and get a different mobo, that one you linked to isn't exactly the easiest to work with.

The 4890s are a fair bit more expensive than the GTX275. In my shopping cart, those 275s are showing at $170, due to a ton a rebate offers, coming out at $340 together. Also, any reccomendations on mobo?

One instant rebate or one mail-in? I'm not counting any MIRs, only the instant rebates.
