Nice build. MOTM brought me here haha.

Suggestion on GPU, since you have a monitor compatible with the new G-Sync tech from Nvidia, you might want to stick with an Nvidia card or two.

So I just bought a Galaxy GTX 780 HOF Edition on Newegg for $540. Prices tanked after the release of the 290x. Anywho, the HOF Edition has been overvolted to 1.2v and overclocked as high as 1378 and 1976 for the GPU and Memory respectively. It seems that, at 1378, the card still has room to go, but the GPU hits its maximum peak and begins to show tearing. In tests, it rivals and sometimes beats the Titan. That might be a good use of your funds there, since the card never went above 75c at full load. That being said, it did use a lot of power, at 502w at peak.

Just read your last post. The 780ti looks awesome, but the premium over the regular 780 almost doesn't seem worth the money. At 2304 cores, the 780 lists as low as $400 for a reference model. The Galaxy HOF Edition is the fastest card, and listed at $540. So for those 2 cards, each core is 17.3 cents and 23.4 cents per cuda core. The 780ti is expected to list at $699, which is 24.2 cents per core. So I wonder if the difference is worth it, even compared to the HOF Edition I bought. You could almost buy 2 stock GTX 780s for the price of a single GTX 780ti. If I were you I would buy the reference 780, save for a second, and sell one set of games that you get free! Don't get me wrong, the ti looks AWESOME, but considering the rest of the line up just had a HUGE price drop, I would take advantage of that.
