Well forgive me for screwing with your plan... Drop the:

Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO 82.9 CFM Sleeve Bearing CPU Cooler
Samsung 840 Pro Series 128GB 2.5" Solid State Disk
Seagate 4TB 3.5" 5900RPM Internal Hard Drive
Reason:
You dont really need CPU cooler unless you are gonna Overclock it
SSD life is limited so you dont wanna buy it and throw it away after a few years (may be shorter)
The bigger the hard drive more problems like unstable, crash, slow start sometime, you can get like maybe 500GB or 1TB but do research of each before you gonna get one, example: whats the best 500B or 1TB depend on speed and stability. Get big hard drive for back ups I would say.


Swap GPU:
2x Sapphire Radeon HD 7770 GHz Edition 1GB Video Card
to
1x http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Swap CPU:
AMD FX-6300 3.5GHz 6-Core Processor
to
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Im not a PRO nor Expert, im just sharing my own experience/opinion, thanks for reading.

Kudos for the speedy reply skyhide. In regards to your comment about the ssd and large capacity hd I understand your point but I disagree. In my opinion an quality ssd is important for my build. Faster, smoother and more efficient than older hd technology. You stated that the life of ssd's are limited...well mate, my life on earth is limited but that will not stop me from living the rest of it. Therefore, I will continue my plan on using a quality ssd for my OS. I believe it is the most cost effective and efficient way to go.

Next, your suggestion to swap the 2 radeon hd 7770 for 1 GeForce GTX 660. I am researching this idea further. The price will be in the same ballpark as having 2 crossfired hd7770 for the $180. I do have a question though...I was planning on using AMD Eyefinity to run up to 6 independent monitors. Can this be done with the GeForce GTX 660?

Finally, your suggestion about dropping the Fx-6300 for the Fx-8320. I mentioned that in my original post. But the question is...Is this upgrade worth the extra $35?

Cheer!


No, single GTX 660 cant run 6 monitors, 4 at max but If you still wanna use AMD Eyefinity its okay since AMD is doing a great job at it longer than Geforce I think, As for the CPU, Yes its worth the extra $35 if you drop SSD and lower HDD capacity also I respect your decision so like I said I was just sharing :)  plus AMD FX-6300 has 6 Cores/6 Threads while AMD FX-8320 Has 8 Cores/8 Threads, point is yes it does effect performance a bit not really much or huge difference.
