    I'd lose the H100 for a D14 and then get a less expensive power supply. 850W is overkill for a single 7870. You'd probably also benefit from going with a GTX 660TI over a 7870 for CUDA and Phys X. Try something like this:

    - Dropped the gimmick liquid cooler for a D14
    - Downgraded the PSU (but is Seasonic quality)
    - Best SSD on the market currently (I really hesistate to recommend Sandforce drives because I've had bad experiences with them)
    - Swapped 7870 for a GTX 660TI
    - You don't need 32GB of RAM for your uses but 2 x 8GB leaves room for expansion
  2. After much though I go with your solution :) thanks
