We started out with the z79 processor, but it just didn't fit the budget, and really tbh, other than photoshop and high end video editing, what is going to use that many cores. Games aren't doing it yet, not in any way that really matters.
We started off looking at the H60, the smaller version of your H100, but then went to some phamtecks or some shit. The antec cooler came because I was at frys and we needed something and that was it.
As for the monitors, the resolutions sounds awesome, but last time I checked, the human eye can't tell the difference after 1080p, and even 720p on anything smaller than a 36inch screen, so the higher resolution is really bragging rights more than anything.
In any event, i will be putting the system through it's paces soon. Im a big Civ 5 fan, and I know that once you get a huge map really going it slows the system down, so I plan on doing that soon just to see what I can push it too, I will also be giving the withcher 2 a go per quicksurfer's recommendation.
