Upgrade time! look good?

Hi all,
I just got my tax return back and with the money I am going to upgrade my pc. I am a huge gamer and I’m currently playing Guild Wars 2, Far Cry 3, Black ops 2, Battlefield 3, and soon to be Bioshock infinite, Metro Last Light, and Sim City. I don’t want to spend more than $2000 and if I can even hit $1500 or less that would be great. I was hoping I would get some feedback for what I plan on putting in it or possibly ideas of ways to make it cheaper without reducing too much performance and I also want to make sure it is future proof.

I currently have only a couple of parts I am keeping in my system.

I have a Themaltake Black Widow power supply,

Gigabyte GA-Z68X-UD3H-B3 Motherboard,

NZXT Phantom 410 Case,

OCZ Agility 3 60GB SATA III SSD (for windows only),

So that is what I have so far and the list bellow is what I plan on buying.

2x Western Digital Black 7200RPM HD (RAID 0) $99.99each,

Intel Core i7 3770k CPU $329.99,

G.Skills ARES series 16GB DDR3 1866 $94.99,
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231560
Corsair H100i Hydro series water cooler $109.99,
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835181032
2x MSI Lightning GTX 680 (SLI) $499.99each,
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814127693

So that is it… all together its about $1900 including tax. Please let me know if you have any suggestions. Thanks a lot
Mike

    If you want to cut down cost, get a 3570k. Only get 8gb ram
  2. Do you play on more then one screen? if not then....sli 680's is way overkill.
  3. do u need monitor+os+mousse?
