Pretty good build, but since you just said "gaming" , 2500k is fair enough and overclocking it to 4ghz+. 580 is a good choice. you can also consider a single GPU for less issue on some games.(space/power/heat savings) a 7970 I would suggest and which can max out the new games. Everything else looks fine except razer lycosa having lots of negative reviews.

2500k vs the 2600k has been debated. It has been shown to give a few more FPS in certain games, and one could argue that future games might utilize the hyper threading more. With that said, I went with the 2500k personally. The extra $100 wasn't worth the few frames. For you, that could be different.

I agree with Adam about considering a different GPU. The 7970 can be had for $50 more, $100 more for two of them. If you swapped the 2600k for the 2500k, and switched the two GTX 580s for two HD 7970s, you'll get spend the same amount of money, and get much better performance in gaming.

This, i would not get the 580's anymore unless you are going to be doing folding on your gpu.. otherwise i would snag a 7970!

ya skip the lycosa its no good. get yourself a decent mechanical keyboard.
and i really like corsair the more i buy their products. I personally would recommend a psu from them and drop the nh-d14 for an h100.(not tryin to start the whole debate there) wish my 912 had room for it.
I modded my case to fit the h80 in a good intake spot and i am really impressed it stays under 60 degrees when stressing it.

The Lycosa is fine, I actually like it a lot more than my old Black Widow, Mechanical keyboards are so loud, the only one I would even consider anymore would be the Black Widow Steal Edition.

My Lycosa has had zero issues as well (I've had it for over 6 months now). It has many negative reviews, but angry people are generally louder than happy ones. I'd say it's a good keyboard, it just might not be the most consistent as far as quality control.

I second going for the H100. That thing has done very well in benchmarks. Also the Razer BlackWidow is a good mechanical keyboard. There are two different versions. The one with Stealth in the name is sold only on the Razer website and has quieter keys.(Cherry MX Brown) The BlackWidows(2 different models) without Stealth in the name have the Cherry MX Blue switches. They are not quiet by any means, but are very satisfying to type on.(I am typing this with them) On the other hand as I stated they are quite noisy and some people can't handle it. You can try the MX Blue version in Best Buy if you have one close by. They have a cut out on the case so you can play with the arrow keys.

The only "problem" I can see is you're shorting yourself the potential this system has not going with a z68 chipset. Get the ExtremeZ board, even though it's about $50 more, you'll have the z68 chipset which works great with Sata III SSD (I have that drive and it's amazing). I like the Razer Lycosa keyboard a lot so it's a matter of personal preference. Overall it's a good build, post some pics when you're done.

Yeah, don't get me wrong by NO means is the Black Widow bad. It just was so loud that it woke my girl friend up at night, my pc is in our room, so I had to get something that was quieter. I LOVED MY Black Widow, although the touch controls on the Lycosa are EPIC and I do wish they would be integrated into the BW.
