I built this over the summer. I'm pretty happy with the build. Everything went together smoothly. I probably would have gone with a cheaper motherboard as this one is overpriced. (Should of done more research.) The optical drive, two HDD's and Windows were free from work. A stable overclock to 4.3ghz. BF3 and Arma 2 dont go passed 65deg on the 670 FTW, still working on the overclock. I will probably grab another FTW down the road for SLI. The case is huge with a lot of airflow. Extra Bitfenix fan added to bottom. Just need to get a better monitor and maybe another 670 down the road. I'll edit the prices later and give a closer estimate to what I spent, as some of the equipment was bought from retail but on the tax holiday.
Update 5/1/13: SLI w/backplates Asus VG248QE 144hz 3d monitor
