Hello, For awhile ive been going back and forth to find the best components that fit my needs for my new eyefinity build. I think ive got it all pat down, but for arguments sake, im posting it up here for any "cconstructive critism", and comments. If you have anything to say, please back it up with an explanation, and your alternative. Its so annoying having like 5 guys telling you your not right simply because they say so. I am not certainly not a shmuck, i have done all my research and comparisons, and am looking soley for last minutes tweaks and overviews. Thankyou Very much! Also, would like to know if all my components will fit in the case ^^ With alteast some elbow room !
Just a few things for such a sweet gaming machine:
1. The motherboard might be a little "overkill", unless there is a specific reason you want it. I would take a look at the MSI MPower Z77 Motherboard: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... It has all the same functionality, but it has been tested for overclocking and is cheaper.
3. I would recommend getting 2x8GB RAM, because Ivy Bridge works slightly better when paired with one dual channel kit. It also allows for even more room for upgrading in the future. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... This is not something that will greatly change performance, but it'll help.
Don't purchase a closed liquid loop. If you want liquid cooling use the real thing or don't use it at all.

For a gaming rig you don't need 16GB of RAM - that's just not the place to spend tons of money on a build. 8GB. Nothing more, nothing less.
The Vapor X is an excellent card with an above average cooling solution. Alternately the Gigabyte Windforce 3X cards are good from what I hear. There's also that ridiculous Windforce 5X card that's been released but that thing takes up 3 slots.
