Hey guys, so after a few days of being on here, various sites, you guys have helped me tremendously with my build! I am about finished with it, so here we go again - Please tell me if I am missing anything, need to tweak anything/add anything! (Build is made primarily for running multiple OS's, VMware, penetration testing, secondly for gaming!)

I just need some feedback...?

I wouldn't get the 1090T because at that point youd be better off going for the i5 750 IMO. Course the 1090T is a valid choice.

SSD: It's bigger form factor (3.5) like a normal HDD but same price for more space and after rebate it's cheaper by 10$. Plus its OCZ!

Yeah, I thought about using the i5 2500K however I don't plan to overclock and this was a project for me to get to know the internals of a computer better. Any other advice for my current build?

If you don't plan on o/c then don't get the 2500K. The Sandy Bridge 2500, 2400, and 2300 aren't cpu's that o/c, but even at stock settings they mop the floor with anything AMD has out there atm.

But wait, there’s more. What about the Radeon HD 6900s in CrossFire? After all, AMD claims to have made some notable improvements to its scaling.
You’re only going to buy two high-end graphics cards if you’re running at the top resolutions with visual details maxed out. That’s where the 2 GB frame buffers featured on both 6900-series cards come in handy. In many cases, two $300 Radeon HD 6950s outperform a pair of $350 GeForce GTX 570s, saving you $100 total for better frame rates.
