Well, I've been using computers for years, and I've upgraded loads of them, but I've never built one from the ground up. Now however I just got a job that pays 100 a day for practically no work, so I've got money to burn. A couple days ago I found out about the Triplehead2go from Matrox and decided it's time I build one :whistling:

I've found a website which offers a Triplehead2go box and three monitors for 850, so I don't need to worry about that. What I am worried about is finding all the hardware I need, making sure it's all compatible with each other, and making sure it can utilize the 3840x1024 resolution offered from three monitors. So far here are the parts I have picked out:

Mobo: http://www.newegg.co...N82E16813131025
Processor: http://www.zipzoomfl...oductCode=80860
RAM: http://www.newegg.co...N82E16820231065
PSU: http://www.newegg.co...N82E16817341002
Cooling: http://www.newegg.co...N82E16835106061
2 HDs: http://www.newegg.co...N82E16822144701
2 vid cards (for SLI D:): http://www.newegg.co...N82E16814150144
Triplehead2go plus three monitors: http://www.studica.com/Matrox/
Case: http://www.xoxide.com/xwu.html
Liquid Cooling: http://www.tigerdire...e...11&NoMapp=0
2 dvd drives: http://www.newegg.co...N82E16827131031

So what I really want to know with all this stuff is, is the motherboard SLI compatible? Will everything work fine together? Will everything fit inside my case and will the liquid cooling kit work? I'm totally lost here so any feedback would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I'm a video editor, so having three monitors and a monster of a CPU would really allow me to multitask like a professional. And besides:

How can you say no to that? :whistling:
