How is this build? Would you change anything? The big psu is for future sli and overclock.

16GB of ram is a lot for gaming.

You could do with 8GB of 1866.
GSKILL Ripjaws X http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231455
$72.99

A Samsung 840 EVO might be worth considering, you could get a 128GB version of it, its enough to store Windows and a few programs. But I will leave that one up to you. Its released on the 14th.

$109.99

Be careful about the Seagate ST2000DM001. There are two versions of that drive, A faster one with 1TB platters and a slower one without; those are both sold and marketed as the ST2000DM001.

The WD10EZEX would work well but is only 1TB, there are two versions of that drive as well; one with higher access times than the other. But wouldn't be a deal breaker if this is used for storage and holding games. Apparently all 3TB drives are made with 1TB platters but don't quote me on that one as I'm not too sure.

Hitachi Deskstars or Ultrastars look good.

Instead of the Asus 780 I would get the EVGA 780 with the ACX cooler.

$670

EVGA have a great warranty in America.

850 watts will be more then enough for two cards in sli and an overclocked cpu. With the money saved you can get the cooler and ram i listed which is much better then the vengeance ram

I was interested in the phantecks air fan because it's quieter and don't have to worry about maintenance or failing pumps. Would that g skill ram be able to fit under the air cooler? It needs low profile. Would the 850 watt be enough to over clock the sli gpus as well? Don't want to run into energy problems..

Thanks for the responses!

If you use the 2nd and 4th slots then you wont have any clearence issues. 850 watts will be more then enough even with overclocked gpu's. As for the cooler, you dont need to maintain it but i can understand about the pump failing.
