Well, you're gaming, so 16GB is unneeded. 8GB will suffice. 2133MHz RAM is also overkill. 8GB 1600MHz RAM will do fine. It is ALWAYS better to get a single, more powerful card than SLI. The 550Ti's are a bit weak, and are the bottleneck. I highly suggest that you get a 560Ti, or 7850. If they 560 Ti 448 is not out of your range, it is GREAT. It overclocks to a GTX 580 level, and will run almost any game at 60FPS. The case is good, but you can get a cheaper case for $100, but if you want it, go for it. It's an exceptional case. The PSU is so-so. Thermaltake PSU's aren't the best, nor are they the worst. Get from a more reliable brand.

There are a ton of GPU's in the $200-$300 range.

I think the 7870, 560 Ti 448, and maybe 6970 are what you should be looking at.
