  1. *Everything seems ok but why are you buying a 850w PSU??? unless you're planning to add 2 extra GTX 660ti in a close future (2 months) there is no point to buy such an overkill PSU, a 550w will be enough...i want to point out that 99 times out of 100 people say that they're going to add a second or third car when the next gen of GPUs come out...usually that NEVER happens.

    *Asus Sabertooth is an OK board, it has nice features but its waaay overpriced and overated, either buy a Gigabyte G1. Sniper 3 (for 3way SLI) or a simple but extremely good Asrock Z77 Extreme 4 (for 2way SLI only)

    *That SSD is ok but there definetly better options like the Vertex 4, Samsung 830, Crucial M4 or Muskin Chronos deluxe.

    *That CPU cooler is going to brutally kill ALL your system aesthetics, buy a H100 that performs a bit better (if you replace the fans it will perform waaay better)

    *I doubt you need 16GB (unless you're going to do heavy video editing) buy 8GB, that will way more than enough and use the money saved somewhere else.

    *That case is nice but for a little bit more you can buy a BitFenix Colossus or for a bit less you can buy the NZXT Phantom or NZXT Whisper.

    *do not listen to what anyone says, only listen to those who have prof of what they say and i say that any of the SSDs i mentioned are better than the Corsair GT, you can Google it yourself, i dont feel like looking into benchmarks right now.

    *That case isn't bad... keep it if you like it :D

    *The Corsair H100 under full load with stock fan IS LOUD but not if you replace the fans with quality ones... you can also buy this http://pcpartpicker.com/part/thermaltake-cpu-cooler-clw0217 that cooler comes with pre applied high quality fans, it performs better than the H100 and it does it while been quieter.

    *You should have said that you are only planning to overclock to 4.0 before...the Coolermaster 212 EVO is more than enough for that.
