I'm in the midst of building my first beast of a gaming PC. I've built a couple of lower priced gaming PC's, some for friends, and some for me, and I think I want to build my Master PC. I have $3500 in my pocket, and I'm looking to build this thing soon. Now, with the Z97 Motherboards coming out soon, and the new i7-4790K supposedly releasing soon, I've decided to wait until I can upgrade to those. Now, I don't know how long that will be until, so I want you guys to review this build I came up with. Now, keep in mind the CPU and MOBO will be upgraded when these new parts release, but as of right now, how good is this build?

I wanted:
- A PC that can be overclocked very high.
- Dual SLI so I can Max out games on 1440p, as well as the games releasing later this year like The Division, Star Citizen, Dragon Age, Inquisition, etc
- 2 Monitors. 27" will be my main monitor, and the 23.8" will be the side monitor
- Silent, or close to it.
- Water-cooled.
- A lot of Memory

What would you add to this build if you could add something? No more than $3700

For dual cards you will want an i7. An i5 is suitable for a single card, but multiple cards will benefit from an i7

Looks lovely, wish I had your budget!

Not sure if you need it but how about some surround sound for a better gaming experience?

Surround sound sure would be nice! I use my headset most of the time though. :-/
