    Haha! Yeah, already sold it xD so currently have no PC, iPad is getting me through... Just!

    I'm going the water cooling route, get a proper alphacool kit and extra radiator and full GPU block, wanna make sure this is is up to the task until the next gen! Well, as good as it can, I'm not really fussed about what's coming out next or price for the time being, I want to upgrade now and currently, these are the best parts out, also going with corsair dominator ram and corsair AX 760i PSU, 120gb ocz vector SSD, 1tb velociraptor and a 2tb wb black, might add more SSD space in the future but I am a velociraptor fan xD

    Good build. If you arent doing memory intensive tasks, 8GB of RAM is plenty. The reason I get more RAM, is because I run virtual machines and do video editing often. It is your choice once again! lol.

    Right now on bf3 of the current gen cards, one 7970 ghz will keep bf 3 ultra at 60 fps at 1080p and a 680 or overclocked 670 will keep 60 fps on ultra. For the frostbite 3 engine, we can only speculate being that a 7990 was running it at max on an fx 8350 beautifully on what else would run it nicely. A gtx 780 will for sure eat that game unless we missed something, but basing things off how bf3 was at launch, it may actually be a challenge on the current gen (or in nvidias case last gen now) to keep 60fps on ultra at the 1080p. But that's just a guess based off needing 2 580s or 6970s at launch of bf3 before.

    It will probably call for a modern quad core and a decent GPU to run on ultra.

    Yeah, but I'm just curious because its all up to the frostbite 3 and the destruction physics. That was one of the most taxing things about that game and with it turned up this go round, apart from some awesome visuals, we are going to see some real stress.

    I agree, I'm thinking more in the future, the new game consoles both have 8gb of ram, the old consoles had 512mb of ram and the odd edram placed here and there, I can happily bet in 3 years time, games will be 64 bit only and require 4-6gb of ram if not, considerably more. Sure, if I had 8gb of ram they would still run fine, but I'm prone to having loads of things running that eat up ram so I was over preparing on ram for when it will come in useful :) assuming my prediction is correct that is xD that and this motherboard supports RAM Disks! I could always use the extra space for running stuff off a RAM disk if I felt something was loading slowly xD
