Well if your not buying today, then come back when your a week or so from buying. If your buying around Christmas time the computer industry will have changed dramatically, so it would be better to come back when your buying. If your buying soon that is a different story.

When are you buying your parts?

I have a crossfire of two 780's, the 780 TI's were a lot more.

The case is a red and black case, and the motherboard is red and black, like you wanted.

Out of curiosity, babachicken, do the ultra-expensive RAM and motherboards really matter, or will my choices work fine?

well, the ram is more reliable, and it just plain looks good, and the asus motherboard is far better than the gigabyte one, it is a better overclocker, doesnt have a brown pcb (ew) and is more reliable.

also the choice you made for the case was not good, he is doing SLI so he needs a big case with nice airflow, also red and black, so here the nzxt h440 shines

This is a good build. The video card is the best rated one. Don't know why you specified the one you did. The Noctua cooler is far better, quieter than the CM EVO and cools as good as a water cooler and cools the ram sticks too. The RAM is low profile to fit under the cooler. Top quality power supply and the case is huge and has the best in air flow, a fan blowing right on the video card.

As for the case, they are both red and black, and mine has the big air thing on the front. The NZXT sure as heck is a lot nicer, but I think mine will work fine.

The power supply also seems excessive on yours. I think mine would do the job. 780's in SLI should only need 800W.

How about a Z97-A? Sure, it's brown too, but that's a better motherboard than the Gigabyte.
