get rid of the seagate, and get Western Digital. More reliable. Instead of getting 2 6970s id rather get 2 6850s and unlock to 6970 or get 1 6990

What I reccommend, is you swap out your i5, and throw in a i7 2600k. It's a bang for your buck, 5/5 rating, its the best out for a good price!

You don't need the 2600K if gaming is the main intention. Only get the 2600K if you're actually going to make use of those extra threads like video encoding/rendering while you're gaming or something. Otherwise, save the $100. The 2500K is the best bang for buck IMO and performs just as well as the 2600K in games. Those extra threads on the 2600K do nothing for games.

1TB Samsung F3 drives are better than HDDs from Seagate (excluding that Hybrid though)

You can get two 6950s instead and unlock them to be 6970s:
