How does this build look?

I was thinking 570 sli, but this build is 150 dollars cheaper and 6950 crossfire scales amazingly good.

should be a fine build. you on't see much difference however between teh i7-950 and teh i5-760. And if you wait 3 weeks, Sandy Bridge should be even better.

I'd be willing to bet ya can get CAS 7 or 8 for the same (or almost) price as CAS 9.

I'd use a full tower instead of a mid tower .... with twin GFX cards and, I assume, overclocking, I'd want to take a step up in PSU quality......(Antec DF-85 w/ CP-850 or HAF-X w/ Corsair HX850)

At that price of a box, I'd wanna be able to watch Blue Ray.....if that's you too, a Blue Ray Reader would be a nice addition for a moderate investment
