Do you really need 12GB?

Getting a single 120GB C300 is better.

no 12gb is not something i "need"

there is so much conflicting info about the SSD some claim 2 smaller ones in RAID0 is way better then a single 120gb so i am a bit lost on that point Duckie

never heard anything like that about the 950, interesting info but about the cooling as stated in the first post i am going to get a fully integrated water cooling set up with with cpu all gpu`s and mobo so thats fine

Overkill? well yea there is no way you would need 12gig ram or 3cards but if you have the money why not do an investment in something you love , if one want to get a high end build its up to them what they want to spend money on

after asking around i will drop the TRI SLI for a normal SLI to not experience micro shuttering in games
