The red case does not work IMO. It's almost blinding. I would've gone with black with red accents instead. Nice build. :)

Not a big deal man, don't have remorse but it's good to know:
I5 would have done the trick
H50 not worth it, either go with a high-end cooler or get a 212 evo
Two SSds are unnecessary
SLI 670's is better price:p erformance
Motherboard is a bit cheap for a high-end build
2 monitors is usually awkward
8GB of RAM is fine

My build has plenty of "flaws" so to speak, but i'm happy with it overall. Realistically, the best build is the build that satisfies you the most. I still think your build looks really nice based on the pictures. Happy Gaming!

SSD's don't need raid,the 2TB does.
H50 cooler,such a big big case.
Extreme 4 is budget cutting in the wrong place
For a 680 sli build I can think of much classier cases
Asus cards buddy.

Don't mind me,other than the cooler,(you can fit a H100i) you did good.

Haters gonna hate, eh?

Its an awesome build. Thats it.
The 3770k is not overkill. I use mine to the max on a daily basis...
No one can lecture another on storage, as it is purely personal. If you need 2 SSDs, then thats the end of that...
The case looks eye-catching, but i might reconsider the blue fans. They clash with the red a bit... My 2c :) 
Otherwise - awesome build!!!
