Will be used for Gaming mostly and College network administrator classes. I know I don't need an i7 but this is what i will have for the next 5 years or so, so I want to maximize what ill have for as long as ill have it. Now i know everyone will get on me about the case. I know its WAY over priced and i don't plan on custom w/c but i mean come one that thing is so damn sexy i can't help it. I don't really like windowed cases so my aesthetics will be the case. But any and all opinions will be appreciated.

If you spend less in peripherals you can get a SLI setup which will be great.

2700$ and no dual monitor setup? That's a big waste IMO. Get the dual monitors. You won't regret it. One more thing, You might want to look at the corsair cases, in my opinion they look much better than that case and their performance is on par. Thanks and nice build enjoy!

yea..i mean the build is good, but I think as you stated your putting to much into the case and peripherals. You could run Sli if you made some budget trades. could save $8 on paste/$30 on HDD/$150 on case/ $10 on PSU/$100 on monitor/$100 on KB/mouse/$50 on headest and $50 on MB (logitech G930) also better imo. That would save ya $500 around for another videocard..so you might be just shy of running dual sli.
