This will destroy any game maxed out.
Has the best 670 you can buy
Best gaming CPU on the market.
One of the best cpu coolers available
Blazing fast RAM
Awesome HDD
Even better SSD
Big enough PSU to add another 670 in SLI.

That's a great case. They are a matter of personal preference really.
You could halve the SSD and double the HDD for sure. Normally, people put the OS, commonly used apps like browsers and MS Office, and their games on the SSD so they are faster. It just depends on what you want.

This build allows you to add another one of those cards later on in SLI.

n When a build has a cpu cooler that cost more than the case that should say something right there not to mention the $80 psu for a $2,000 budget and no 120Hz monitor.
