Uhh, well there isn't. What plans do you have for this build? I mean it's an awesome build. You obviously have the money. If you don't plan on a complete water cooled PC and SLI 780s, the 1200w PSU is overkill. And I would change the 128GB SSD to 250.

6 core cpu is just for rendering, you don't need that much cores and thread for rendering, that's just an overkill for gaming. Get a normal i7 4770K instead.
1 GPU and 1200W? That's too too much an overkill too.
A 850W 80+ Gold is better and you have enought room for another graphics card.

A good gaming keyboard is RAZER BLACK WIDOW. RAZER is just for gaming! For gamers by gamers.

it says that he has two of the 780's in SLI. It looks like a pretty good build to me. The only things that I would suggest are
1) if you plan on gaming at 4K, you may want to wait for a higher than 3GB version of those cards, as in 4k stuff less than 4GB seems to be less than optimal. It would be ok in some games, but sometimes you would fill the frame buffer completely, which causes crashes and unplayable lag spikes.
2) have you ever done an SLI/Crossfire rig before? Those two cards will give you better performance, but a 780TI would still be killer fast and be a lot more simple as with dual GPU's sometimes you have games that don't take advantage of it well, if at all. Just something to consider. I also think the 780Ti would be about 250 cheaper as well.

The nice thing about going all out on the PSU is that a high quality, high wattage unit like that will last you through several builds. The only possible down-side is that if it is too large for the system, you could see a slight drop in efficiency, but that is a platinum rated unit so it should be minimal.

well i plan on using quad monitor so i figured i need some high end GPUs i do plan on 3 way SLI next year when the newer models come out. budget was $3000 including the monitor gaming headset mouse ECT. and if any of you can get me a good gaming pc with all the accessories that would be great but i do have some things i need in the pc

1. an intel CPU (a very good one for gaming i am a very hard core gamer)
2. a nvidia GPU (preferably a GTX 700 line)
3. 32 gb of ram
4. also i am not going for efficiency i am going for a reliable 1200W power supply i have been known to upgrade (a lot like 2000 worth)
