Unless you are uber rich and a few thousand dollars means nothing to you, you shouldn't upgrade to a 30" monitor and then tri or quad sli. I do believe Crysis will run perfect maxed with a gtx 295 on a 24" monitor. I don't know how much AA you are going to get though. I run Crysis with an average 25 fps on a 24" with a gtx 285. The gtx 295 is a lot better, and you should be able to run crysis without any fps lag through practically the whole game.

My entire rig, INCLUDING watercooling and case was way less than 5000.
30" dell 700$
evga x58 = 300
6gb ddr3 = 200
i7 920 = 300
mountainmods UFO case = 500
watercooling = 800 (300 for video card blocks, 500ish for everything else maybe less)
enermax 1050w psu = 300
3 gtx 285s = 1100

thats what, 4100?

I'm now annoyed to figure out how much i have actually spent on this stupid hobby

you haven't read the rest of the thread have you? He has alot of money to spend.

A 30" will be beautiful and there is no reason not to get it if you can afford it.

For those who doubt the 30" monitor. I went from a 20" that i had for around 3 years, up to a 24" for around a year, and now that i have my 30" i dont see how i ever did without it. Although, i'm also the guy that bought a 42" widescreen tv while they were still close to 3000 bucks, and just upgraded to a 67" widescreen tv. So, take anything i say with a grain of salt

This thread is getting a little popular, isn't it. Anyway. this is mainly a dream build. I hope I do eventually build it but I probably won't for a while. I will be updating this until I eventually do build it though so expect allot of changes. Also, can someone tell me how many PCIe 2.0 Express slots the MOBO has because I'm a bit confused.

I would look at getting an EVGA X58 Classified. They look AMAZING. They are pricey but you can have tri-sli plus a sound card and another spot open. I would love one but I have no money

So I would be able to have 3-way SLI and a sound card and would still have two slots to spare? Awesome!
Edit: Would I be able to run a PCI-Express X1 TV Tuner card? And if so, could you please suggest a good brand?
