I've always kind of been scared of water-cooling that's why i picked the best (from what I've seen) air-cooler. it just seems like having to clean out the radiator is allot of work for not that much performance

There is nothing to be scared of wink.gif. I got my H80i literally a few days before I knew about Water cooling Kits. It's all assembled and liquid is pre-filled, all in one piece. Basically Installation is the same as Air cooling, you just have to find a place to hang the radiator. And once you get into overclocking you will see the difference.

GPU: Gigabyte 7970 ghz
PSU: corsair AX860 platinum (I know I'm going to get crap for this one)

Looks pretty awesome to me now. If you want a Seasonic X Series PSU will give you same quality and performance as the Corsair for a little less money.

As far as the ASRock query, they have really improved their quality and performance. Any negative feedback is usually misinformation or isolated incidents.

The Gigabyte board though will be more than enough.

The AIO cooler question and memory has seem to be covered.

Your new rig will be a beast

Definitely gonna agree with Stroonz here, 2x 7970 will serve you far better for 1440p, 680s will still have trouble running games at that res, and Bf3/PS2/Cry3 is already eating 2gb~~ of VRAM from my 7950.

Don't know about Z77 for a $2500 budget with CF, but I suppose it can't hurt to go up to x79. 3820/Extreme 6 will be wonderful for that setup, or atleast that's what I've found in my experience.

He is not going to benefit from x79 almost at all...
