More about what 3000 dollar build
  1. I see $2000-2500 worth of parts...not $3000. Other than that, you've got more psu than you need, but nothing wrong with that.
  2. Drop the H100 - don't use a plastic block. The Plextor BD-R burner is outrageously expensive for what you get (yeah I have one, I know), and the 1KW PSU is major overkill.

    You could pay 1/2 that and get a system that performs just as well. Check this out:

    Use the difference for a couple nice monitors or anything else you might need.
  3. He wants 2 gtx670s.

    I would get the H100 over the Noctua, the noctua is large, ugly, and in the way.
