Help Building Gaming PC (choose parts)

Hello, new member here! First thread!
I have been researching for weeks now and I have these components for my hardcore gaming desktop. I am asking you guys to consider this list and see any imperfections here. My budget is about $3000 and since this is a lot I want a super duper gaming rig for the money. Since I have been researching a lot, I think this is pretty much a perfect build. Then again, there are more experienced people here and maybe they could suggest some tweaks.
The BOLD items are the ones I REALLY want you guys to comment on.

    -you need more ram than that
    -i7s are not for games
    -670s perform the same as a 680 out of the box
    -evga does not make the best cards with the best coolers
    -you dont build yourself a beast rig and use cheapo peripherals.
    -the g9x is pretty much the standard gaming mouse other than the razer deathadder and the logitech g500
    -you need a SSD
    -id get a good headset instead of speakers but then again speakers are useful for movies

    -a reminder is that the ram is to be overclocked. its pretty crap at what it is set as. try 1866mhz cl9-9-9-24. it should be stable

  3. Best answer
    -dude, it is put in as a 2x2 kit. it also makes no sense as you are using ddr2, which is incompatable
    -that is bs because they make no difference in games. i have a i7 3770k. i turn off 4 of the 8 threads to mimic a i5. same gaming performance. and even if its a workload situation, a i7 is about 30% faster than a i5, not 5x
    -it means crap. 670s are shown to beat 680s out of the box (given my card has a overclock from the factory).
    -peripherals are thing that you interact with with the computer.
    -it sure does make a lot of sense to use a internet-browsing designed mouse to game hardcore. there are wireless gaming mice if you want me to suggest some

    note that if a 670 puts out 60 fps and a 680 puts out 68 fps, you cant see the difference anyways because its above your monitors refresh rate
  4. if you buy 4 kits of those 2x2 kits it would make sense, but then it also wouldnt given there are 4gb and 8gb sticks avaliable for purchase

    @thebigtroll, he is just trolling he already made another thread asking the same thing here and by the post he just said, i don't think he knows much about computers
  6. i kinda figured out when he doesnt know what "peripherals" are.
