I'd also love to get your opinions on this possible build as well, and maybe a comparison as to which one looks better! http://pcpartpicker.com/p/2XbML
I'm looking to build an amazing gaming machine by the way. Able to play any game on ultra with ease! Thanks!

You could save some money by getting an i5 CPU, i7's aren't any better than i5's for gaming. You could probably go down to 8gb of RAM as well. With that money saved, I would buy two GPU's. Probably two 770's.

@zeph_yr Thanks for the tip, although money isn't really an issue for this one! It's my first build and i'm going all out!!!! But if you really think I should go to 8gb of RAM, ill take into consideration...I too think 16 is a bit much. But could everyone take a look at this build? I just combine the two builds into one ultimate gaming machine!!
