In Topic: Soothing that new build itch. Purchase made (7/24/2014)

I think you'll be fine unlocking your 290.  Just don't overclock anything even more.  You might just unlock it the extra processors and keep the clockspeed a little lower to be safe.

Also temperature matters for power consumption of the 290.  It runs more efficiently when it's cooler, so keep an eye on that.

Ok, looks like I might be ordering the parts tomorrow. Anyone see any issues with this? http://pcpartpicker.com/p/tbBVmG Note I removed the power supply because Vic is sending me his. Will everything for sure fit in the selected tower and are there any other issues I might want to look deeper into before I start making purchases?

Looks good.

There are tons of different cases you can choose from in the 50-100 price range.  I'll make a list of them later tonight and you can take your pick based on style.

Would having 2 290s make a huge difference?

Get a bigger power supply than 550W if you think you may get a second video card.  Aim for 700W.
