Hi all!

I am putting together another desktop and I was wondering what you all thought of the build:

Case – Coolermaster HAF X – NCIX# 53776
HDD – WD Caviar Black 1TB SATA3 – NCIX# 50895
Keyboard – Logitech G510 – NCIX# 56602
Mouse – Razer Deathadder – NCIX# 46088
OS – Win7 Ultimate x64 – NCIX# 45278
SSD – Mushkin Chronos Deluxe – NCIX# 62875
Speakers – Klipsh Promedia 2.1 THX – NCIX# 10869
Monitors (x2) – ASUS VG236HE 23in 3D 120hz – NCIX# 55988
Extra – NVIDIA Geforce 3D Vision – NCIX# 62068
Blu Ray Drive - LG BH12LS38 – NCIX # 62879
Mobo – ASRock Fatal1ty P67 Pro – NCIX #59674
CPU - Intel Core i7 2600K – NCIX #57960
Memory – Mushkin Enhanced Blackline Frostbyte 2x4GB (times two = 16gb) – NCIX #54963
EVGA Geforce GTX 570 HD Fermi (times two) – NCIX #58573
PSU - Antec Truepower Quattro 1200W – NCIX #41978

This will be my first time using an SSD, so I might opt out for another HDD instead. This is also the first time using 3D technology so any insight to this would be helpful.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

Personally, I think it is a top o' the line rig. But too rich for my blood...

Pretty good build I however would change the CPU to an i5 2500k if it is for gaming purposes only. If your rendering and what not then keep it. Instead of getting 2 570s why not get one 580 and then get another one once you start to need a little boost. For the SSD I havent heard much about Mushkin I would stick to a Crucial M4. You also dont have any RAM stated in your OP. Im not a WD fan I would go with a Samsung F3 or Seagate Barracuda as well.
