4/10. Why?
Could have gotten an i5-3570k, which would have been better for gaming.
PSU is totally overkill.
GTX 670 SLI is better price/performance.
H100 is not worth it when there are custom loops like the RASA kit that perform better.
Crucial M4 is more reliable and cheaper.

Don't mess with me guys :)  Azeem40, not an expert myself, but the idea was to build a PC with good future proof capabilies. (what ever that might be) The i7 3930K is a six core prossesor, which is in my opinion much better future proof than a quad core like the i5 - 3570k. Most new games are all ready demanding quad core proccesors. Having 2 extra cores doesn't hurt. For PSU, again more future proof, you never know what future gpu's will demand in terms of power consumption. I agree with the gtx 670 part, however, I did not enitially plan to go sli, it just happened after I allready ordered the 680. But I don't complain. Thanx for sharing your views :)  got a quick question, can you sli a gtx 680 4gb and a 680 2gb?

Not really. The only game that comes close to utilizing 4 cores and HT is BF3 and Metro 2033.

Actually, we do know. Power requirements are going to continue to go down. The days of 1kW PSUs are dead.

I see, good to know about the PSU :)  I saw on the back of the max payne 3 game cover that the reccomende required cpu specs was the for 3930K. Here and there games will start to pop up with greater CPU requirements imo
