  5. I'd drop the size of the SSD down to a minimum of 250gb, halve your ram to 8gb, go air cooling for half the price, get a midtower case (nice roomy one with airflow is a 300r. and use the combined savings for a second 970 to SLI for the best performance. maybe even take an i5 if you dont wanna stream, or xeon e3 if you fancy the power of the i7 for less money.
