Pretty good, could do with a better case, I already know your getting a better psu. The GPU could be ALOT better, for the price you paid for yours you probably could have gotten into a 7870 or 7850. The Crucial balistisx is good budget ram, but you could have done better. The corsair H50, depending on how much you paid for it, you might have been able to do better on air cooling. The 2600k is great, that was my second choice for CPU's when I was building, and the mobo, I have it so I cant say anything bad about it so far.

I would change the Crucial Ballisx to this Corsair XMS, the GTX 660 for this MSI Ghz HD 7870 and the Corsair H50 for this NZXT Havic 140

Nothing, its just better value for money with the Radeon, if you have a larger budget, you go for the Nvidia, if you don't, Radeon.

You cant run 4 monitors off a GTX 660, it doesn't have the computing power for that, hell the GTX 680 and HD 7970 have problems with that.
Also notice how you have to plug in the monitor to the wall why would you need a bigger psu for extra monitors?
