    I wouldn't go for a 7990 personally...GTX 780- or a titan will do just fine with less worries.
    other than that.... looks good. You won't have to upgrade for quite a bit so long as you get a decent O.C.. out of the 8350.

    thanks but i would prefer the 7990 its the fastest gpu in the world at the moment (so they say ) and its faster than the titan on all benchmarks ive seen on youtube and the 8350 is a brilliant processor and it shines over all the intel processors ive looked at eg 3770k but how long would my rig last (in years) ?

    How does the 8350 beat the 3770k? No real benchmarks show this. Also, have fun with throttled 7970s in addition to loss in performance with the 7990.

    Why wouldn't you just build it yourself?

    That guy? Hes been shown to be an idiot for a while. He and passmark are the only ones that can come up with that type of data.

    Why not crossfire or sli? The 7990 is 2 throttled 7970's. Well I would personally hold of from buying a gpu til the very end and make it your last buy as the 700 series is being released and possibly the 8000 series (im not 100% sure when) which should affect prices of the 600 series nvidia cards and 7000 series amd cards. 670 prices have fallen by up to £50 on some sites since the 770/80 came out.

    just because you have to make sure both cards are running at the same speed and i dont have time for that with the 7990 i know its 2 7970s put together on *ONE CARD thats the difference its one card and i think it should be easier to manage but if you we recommending a card what would you recommend a TITAN or what? (taking the 7990 out of the picture!)
