  1. 3000 dollars is overkill

    i5 3570k and z77-v pro will be more than enough for gaming

    you can probably get a 16GB of ram instead of 8GB since your going 3 monitors
    DONT GET AN HDD! GET AN SSD! there are big diffrence between them so dont mix
    the 7970 should be able to run anything at a good FPS QUALITY although you can get x2 7970's for a preformance push other than that this build is fine :)
  4. dude, CPU ram does nothing to increase system gaming performance
