Just wanting people's opinions on my new gaming rig. Specs are as follows:

CPU: Intel i5-3570k @ 4.0Ghz
GPU: EVGA GTX 680 FTW 4gb
Mobo: Asus P8Z77-LE Plus
PSU: Thermaltake TR2 Modular 750
RAM: Patriot Viper 1600mhz 4x4gb
Case: Fractal R4
SSD: Intel 330 240gb
HDD: WD Caviar Black 1tb

I am soon going to be getting two more Samsung 24" LCD to match my one, and want to make sure that this rig will handle a three monitor setup. Any suggestions/criticism is welcomed. Take it easy.

dont like thermaltake psu's, maybe antec corsair seasonic etc also if you have no intentions of sli you could comfortably drop down to about a 600watt psu, make sure your ram is 1.5v and 8 gig is plenty for gaming, other than that looks nice

Thanks for the reply Jason. I had 8gb, but where I buy my parts had Patriot Viper on sale for $34.99 for 2x4, so I thought WTF, why not. I am planning on going SLI as soon as my other two monitors get here, do you figure the 750 will be enough juice? What don'tr you like about Thermaltake PSU's? Just curious that's all. Money is not really an object, and I would rather have something better if it's worth it. Thanks again.
