Seems pretty reasonable to me. A nice beefy gaming rig.

looks good

but not so sure you will get 4 ripjaw x modules in with that cooler due to the height of the ram heatsink

2 will go in fine as long as not using the slot nearest the cooler

or get low profile ram

this stuff is great and its the lowest ddr3 i have seen

In no way, shape, or form would that machine need anywhere near close to a 950w power supply.

^+1 950w is way too high

and not sure about the height of the sniper modules

i thought gskill ares were their lower modules

though 8gb would be fine for gaming anyway but ram is so cheap 16gb is so affordable

edit--i see you changed the cooler--still be very tight on the 4th module i would think

edit--ignore me its getting late--never noticed you put 2 x 8gb

Its only if he wants to add crossfire in the future this one with 850 works to. If you can get a cheap one for 800 go for that http://pcpartpicker.com/p/KpkU
