My cap is 1850$, Canadian shipping only
Build two has a video card.. HIS Radeon HD 6970 H697F2G2M Video Card with Eyefinity
Accidently cropped that out.
What do you guys think and why?
Critique as it stands...

Bottom line, if you're going to spend that kind of money, either go with build 1 now, or wait until Z68 comes out second half of this year.

- I have a HIS 5770 and its great, about to get a second one and run it in crossfire.
- Try to get a small ssd for your OS, it will make the computer run a lot faster.
- The asus monitor is outstanding, I have the same one and it has been perfect
- if you go with build 2 instead of using the 1600 gskill ram go with the 1333 and get 8gb thats what I use and I have had no problems with it yet.
Good luck with your decision buddy
