What else do I need to successfully build a new computer? And what would you suggest? I've researched this a bit, but I've come to the point where I need outside opinions. The "upgrade plan" can be found here: http://hardocp.com/article.html?art=NzY5

Thanks a ton for contributing.

Are you sure that you need a serious gaming pc? If not then you can spend much less and achieve similar performance. If you want to play the newest games or use graphics intensive programs then this setup is a good start. You could save some $$ on the power supply, though.

Do you have a pc that you are upgrading? The parts not included in that list (hard drive, monitor, operating system) are going to cost at least $400 more.

I would suggest the Asus A8n-SLI Premium. It fixes a lot of bugs and heat issues with the deluxe and it isn't much more expensive. You also lose a pc-e x1 slot. But that isn't really a bad thing consider the problem that the x1's are between the GPU slots and wth two gaming GPUS, you won't have any room.
