Are you overclocking?
That's actually a really good build. I would just tweak it a bit:

-Cheaper SSD: http://ca.pcpartpicker.com/part/plextor-internal-hard-d...
-Cheaper gpu: http://ca.pcpartpicker.com/part/msi-video-card-n770tf2g...
-Better case, IMHO: http://ca.pcpartpicker.com/part/nzxt-case-caph410b1
-Better quality psu: http://ca.pcpartpicker.com/part/xfx-power-supply-p1550s...


Why go with an SSD? All they do is improve loading speeds.

Ya spending $396 for the GD45 and CPU .... upgrade to GD65 and CPU comes $6 cheaper
http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?Ite...

Not a fan of EVGA SC series GFX cards ..... all competing factory OCd cards from Gigbyte, Asus and MSI use beefed up PCBs and VRMs .... EVGA has reference ones.

id want a better case ... this was $60 20 minutes ago....now $80
http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681...

And better PSU ..... TX or Core Edition 650 for single card ... 860 is ya wanna do SLI someday

SSD gives the pc that snappier feel. It makes it feel really fast.It's true that it doesn't increase gaming performance, but its always nice to have one.
Also, why are you even going with crossfire 7970s? The drivers are really bad for crossfire, not worth it. Also, I wouldn't use the Corsair CX750 for crossfire. The quality isn't very good unless you grab the semi-modular version. Additionally, you'll want a 850w to crossfire 7970, though it's stupid to crossfire right now.
It's not that closed loop liquid coolers aren't good, they cool pretty well as long as you get the good quality ones. Of course, a high-end heatsink can cool just as well at a cheaper and quieter option, but some people don't look having a massive heatsink.

@Jack: Nice combo, but that's the U.S. version newegg, not the Canadian version.

If you are using a single monitor, then dual graphics cards is not necessary.
Dual cards may win synthetic benchmarks, but a strong single card will give less lagging.
cf with amd has been more susceptible to lagging than sli with NVidia.


A SSD is wonderful. It makes everything you do feel so much quicker.
I will never build without one again.

Liquid cooling may get the last 0.1 out of your cpu. But haswell runs very well at stock, or conservative overclock.
I would spend my liquid cooling money elsewhere. I have heard too many tales of woe when liquid leaks and destroys everything.

Just one opinion.

Just to put my two penny piece in, but there are many tales of leaks killing everything, which is stupid. They use coolant not water, and coolant isn't conductive.

Looks OK. I might prefer Samsung 840 SSD, they are usually cheaper and tend to be more reliable.

I like Plextor over the Samsung 840. The regular 840 is alright, the 840 pro is much better but its also more expensive.
Plextor is a great brand and it's usually cheap.

I would grab a different psu. The CX series aren't very great, especially the non-modular version. They are usually meant for budget builds, hence why its so cheap. I would spend the extra money for this: http://ca.pcpartpicker.com/part/xfx-power-supply-p1750b...

Not a real fan of EVGA cards, Gigabyte are usually higher clocked and has superior cooling.

:lol: 
Whoever told you that?
Regardless of what liquid is used in a liquid cooling system, if it spills you will have a problem with electrical conductivity. The Ethelyne Glycol (Also known as Anti-Freeze) used in the Corsair H series included. Its also an absolute mess to clean up I hear as well.

Why Raidmax? They're among the worst vendors you could possibly go with, and are generally considered an absolute joke among serious system builders.

On a $1500 build you'd seriously recommend a $30 case? That's one area where I do not suggest going cheap. If you're going to be giving advice you should definitely make sure of your case choices. Not everyone is going to like Raidmax (serious system builders consider them a joke) and not everyone is going to want a $30 case on a $1500 build, it makes the whole thing look cheap.
