Case: When you're spending that much on a computer, Imo you should spend a little extra on the case, to make sure all of the expensive parts you buy get good airflow. The best case is probably the corsair graphite 600t, or if it's too expensive, the Corsair Carbide 500R... More

As a computer builder myself I started to drool when when I read the specs for this build. It's amazing in all rights!

Dude you can do all of those things at once and the 32GB will never be used... you got way too much RAM... what the heck is with the overkill computer? 3 GTX670's is so overpowered... 1 GTX670 will do everything without any problem.....

For $2,200 you can easily pick out a better brand for you power supply, I never even heard of Cougar And since you'll be gaming might as well add another video card for SLI/Crossfire

I would recommend just building the computer on cyberpowerpc.com. Thats where I got mine from and you could probably make one that is of equivalent power for cheaper. Just go to customize your own and you can choose the parts you want.

i would put in a better power supply maybe a 900w power supply. if you want to upgrade in the future you will need a better power supply. other than that your system is looking good.
