If you're going to spend that much money, why are you settling on the Samsung 840? It's not their best SSD, nor close to the best on the market. You want the 840 Pro, or if that doesn't fit in the budget get an 830.

Ok thanks, I decided to remove the HDD and get two 128GB SanDisk SSDs and raid0 them. Would you recommend that?

that would come out to $2245, a little over my budget. But i'm willing to sacrifice other luxuries.

RAID 0 is pointless with a good SSD - a single SSD will almost fill a SATA 3 controller anyways, and the benefits you get from RAID 0 aren't worth the double failure rate.

Also, that processor is going to have a HELL of a time keeping up with three 670s.

There are a lot of mistakes in this rig. You could get a lot better performance for cheaper by building your own. (It's not hard - LEGOs for adults. And there are lots of youtube videos to walk you through it.)

we'll this computer is solely going to be used for massive rendering, like in After Effects, Cinema 4d, 3ds Max, and Maya. so i changed the SSD to a 250 GB SAMSUNG 840 Series.

^ Then why do you have $1200 worth of gaming components?
You want to be looking into Quadro or Firepro cards for that kind of work.

Also, if you want performance on that kind of level, you have to drop away from AMD. Look to something like a 3930k.
Also slightly bump the RAM to 1600Mhz.

Frankly I don't think Cyberpower really caters to what your after. Might be best off building it yourself.
