Does this gaming system look good?

This is the parts list that I have at the moment:
I am a liitle over my budget so if there s anything I can cut down the price off please tell me but I want to keep it as a high end rig. I am only getting the i7-3770k because there is a store near me where I can get it for 230.

    this will get u more performance.

    modified the ssd. powersupply. fulltowercase. and video :)

    7950 overclocked can level a 680. 7970 stock beats it, overclocked its a beast.
  2. do i even need a 240 ssd or would a 128 gb be fine for operatng system and some games?
  3. 128gb would be fine, but fills up quick.

    up to u, if u can afford 240 is worth it, i own a 240 and fills up quick.
  4. ok and what brand of the radeon are you talking about?
  5. Video Card: PowerColor Radeon HD 7970 3GB Video Card ($359.99 @ Newegg)
  6. ok and how did you get the case so cheap on newegg it says 160.
  7. is radeon better than geforce nvidia?
  8. better is subjective, depends what model u compare to what model.
  9. whats better a two sli 660 ti or a radeon 7980
  10. 7980 doesnt exist.

    u mean 7970. 2x660tis would be faster than a 7970 yes.
