Awesome build. Time for a new monitor ASAP.

ya i agree but until i get a bigger desk i cant and i do like this monitor it has a 75Hertz refresh rate but im saving up for another card or a more powerful one and a 2560x1400 monitor thanks for you great comment

It's a great build..just need a good display to realize it. If you do SLI then you could run a 2560x1440. It'd look amazing! Your system is set up to handle SLI, so do it bro!

Pretty good, but you could have went with an I5 and gotten a better video card and have higher FPS in most games. Good job though I like it +1

i went with the i7 because this pc does after effects and premier editing the cpu was paramount in this build and i got it super cheep so what would have bee the point of an i5 for a wile i was considering moving to socket 2011 and the 760 maxes all of the games that i play and i can always get another or get a next gen nvidia card and crush all of the games

Wow! Very good build. I love that triple can cooler, but I'm not sure whether to get that or MSI.

Anyway, I also like that heatsink, just looks so darn big! +1

You could have gotten win8 for the same price of win7. I mean, once you get used to it, it seriously is a great so. But I mean, it's not that big of a deal. I say stick with your single SSD, and buy your 3tb HDDs, because to SSDs will practically be useless. Use the SSD for boot programs and other programs, and use the HDDs to store your music, games, and photos. Other than that, sweet build!! +1

the thing is that i really dont like win8 and i bout the code 2 yeas before i got around to building it and about the hhds thay are going to be just for media my 1.5TB of video and my 300 gigs of music that are all stored on external drives right now and i was thinking about going raid 0 for two ssds for boot thanks for the nice comment

Persoanlly i hate that ******* cooler! ahah, not due to performance, just due to the size and design.

But yer other than my own passionate hatred for that part, really solid build. Well structured and nice choice on parts.
