Massive overkill for the power supply. Even a 850W will cover you should you decide to go SLI with the GTX 780's.

You should get low profile/no heat spreader RAM to fit under that massive CPU cooler.

What the heck is up with three HDD's? If you need that much space, buy a 4TB one and a SSD for your OS and games of choice.

But there is no SSD. You got an HDD with 24GB of SSD space, leading to lower performance. Also, have you ever heard of partitioning? It makes the OS see an HDD as 2 separate ones, so you can organize it.

Like Telos said, buy a 4TB drive $190 and partition it like you want. Get a Samsung 840 250GB SSD and you're golden.

It only has 32GB of SS memory. So what it does as as you use it, it determines what the most often used files are and stores them in the SS memory. That's fine for the OS and booting. But when you load a new game you have to wait a while for it to recognize it. Writing random files with Office on occasion? Not fast. It's just not as fast as a stand alone SSD for with a stand alone one, you have complete control.

Not for editing 2k they aren't. You need the speed of the separate drives.
