since everyone is criticizing on RAM, perhaps i can offer up the option of using that excess RAM in a RAM drive? i wouldn't exactly know what it'd be used for, but hey; you never know.

i'm curious as to the frames in certain games such as Crysis 2 and Battlefield 3, since all the benchmarks i see show that AMD typically doesn't do all that well in games. also, are you planning on doing anything that would take advantage of the 8350's multi-threaded potential, like video editing/encoding?

Love it. Any particular reason why you went with that motherboard? Perhaps you could've saved a few $$ there, along with 8 gb of ram, and used the extra savings to get an HD7970. Overall though, nice build. Not as balanced as it couldve been, but I like it. Great cable management, and I love your extenders.

BTW-- I have been thinking about getting the Corsair Vengeance K60 and M90, I'm a big online FPS player. Currently playing on a Black Widow Ultimate and Razer Tron Mouse (it sucks). How do you like it so far? Are those cherry red switches on your kb very loud, hows tactile feedback and ghosting?

thanks for your comments, I have always wanted a ROG system. the reason I went with AMD was price. the motherboard was 219.00 when I bought it. not too much. the K60 key board is awesome and yes it is a little on the loud side. I ended up going with the M60 and I love it.

What is this used for? Gaming, video editing?

Well you should've dropped 8 GB of RAM, but other than that great build. If you use After Effects though, that RAM will come in handy.

It does really NOT matter which way it's in This way it just looks better, a good PSU won't care...

Are you planning on adding a 2nd video card in the future? The PSU and motherboard are overkill otherwise.

yes I was planning on adding another video card and running three monitors.

Could have opted out of 16GB for gaming, 8 is plenty (but the price for 16 isn't too much anyways). Great choice on the graphics and SSD, and I like the Corsair 200/300R cases. Why did you need to get Win7 Ultimate if it's just for gaming?

Also, where did you get the sleeving for the PSU cables?

thanks for asking Slykrysis, I already had win7 ultimate. and I do all my computer stuff on this computer it is the only one I have right now. but I will be building another soon. the sleeved cables are extensions from NZXT I got them from Amazon.

The system looks amazing. Great color scheme. I'm left wondering if the system was built more about looks vs best performance? Nothing wrong with the build at all and its done very nicely. With this budget you could have easily built an i5-3570k system with a AMD HD 7970 with room for Xfire. Especially since you've indicated its primary function is gaming. But if you needed more cores you could have even fit an i7-3770k into this budget, it just wouldn't have been all red / black color themed ;)

Again great build I really enjoyed browsing your pictures and thank you for sharing them.
