    Only differences I would do are faster memory, and a Force GT or GS.

    Already got the SSd so don't want to spend money on a new one and hoping the RAM will OC to 2000+ mhz as the difference between 1600 and 2000mhz is big enough to notice the dfference especially for a 2x8GB set :eek:

    From the reviews I've read, the H80 actually outperform the H100 and saves space/money.

    why 2x 7950? If you don't care about $ then go 2x 7970. If not then do 1 7970. It just works better when you need it to. That's just my opinion though. I think crossfire/sli will see their light in a couple more generations.

    Why i3570k if you go with 2x7950? It would make more sense with i3770k and 7970 that will probably cost much less and have more reliable game performance.

    Then with the money you'll save you can have Velociraptor 1TB drives instead of the slower Barracuda or WD black.
