While it looks extremely expensive keep in mind that a large amount is spent on peripherals :P Opinions?

now I don't know what your doing, but if you just gaming you could leave the i7 and go i5. as well as cut the ram down to 8GB, but if your doing any rendering or other CPU intensive tasks I would keep as is. good build.

Thanks. Yeah I have i7 over i5 and 16GB because I do virtualisation. But yes, it is primarily for gaming; hence the powerful GPU

That will do it. Sweet build man.

Any other opinions or things I need to change? I'm considering a hexa-core processor for VMs too.
