Looks fine.

The colour doesn't change anything, its a personal choice.

You cant get 16GB sticks currently, max on a single stick is 8GB. For gaming you shouldnt need more than 8GB, so get a 2x4GB kit.

750W is enough for dual Crossfire/SLI.

If your games are primarily from Steam, you have to install Steam to the HDD. Unless you employ some Command Prompt trickery, Steam requires all your game files to be inside its install folder and doesn't let you take it out of there. If you have a sizable games collection, that can quite quickly use up all your SSD space.

i am going with 27inch should i worry anything about image quality being blurry which i have heard on 1920x1080 .

Any G35 headset use how is the quality for music / Gaming / Watching movies .

Also i plan to Overclock my i5 3570k with Coolermaster Hyper 212 how much performance will i gain in gaming and what clocks should i aim for .

Thanks

Image quality wont be compromised by having the large screen. Just some people think that at that physical size you should have a higher resolution, otherwise the pixels are "too big". But there shouldn't be any problems with quality.

No idea.

A 3570k can get to around 4.2Ghz before needing additional voltage, so aim for that unless you want to get into the gritty side of overclocking. A 212 EVO will hold that frequency fairly well.
As for how much performance you will gain, it wont be that much really. The biggest difference will be in benchmarks.

Too hard to tell that far in the future, especially since the new console generation is happening fairly soon and that will (hopefully) raise the minimum standard for graphics.
Though I suspect it will be able to maintain 35FPS, but higher than that not sure.
