This is for a gaming rig, just wondering if there are any problems with this build or bottlenecks you see:

1866 RAM is pointless - you shouldn't be using over 1600. And make sure it's low profile. I'd also drop one of the hard drives and invest that in upgrading your GPU. The case choice is very nice.

Try something like this:

That's why it didn't add up - I forgot I had an i7. It's late. I'm tired. :lol:
