Wow... Going balls to the wall on this system. Seems a little over priced, considering I've seen systems with 680's instead of 670's go for that. But you get what you pay for. Also, unless you plan on recording and streaming game play( i didn't see it in the article anywhere) the avermedia card isn't needed. The fact your going with LGA2011 surprises me if it is just for gaming, but then again the avermedia card shows other wise. Overall good choice. Having a company build it for you usually adds a tad bit( they have to make money) but it is beyond a good system.

For a few bucks more, 7970 CROSSFIRE! 3GB RAM for future games and AA, Crossfired 7970s, 3570K, Lots of Bling with the all Coolermaster Asus Look, What more do you want?

I am willing to bet that 7970 Crossfire would still be maxing out stuff 3 Years from now with lower AA.

Come On, Buy it now

Woops, Change the Mouse to a Coolermaster Xornet...

I Tried a 3570k, Z77 build without fancy extras...
Managed to include crossfire 7970s Lol...

For 100 more, I think 3570k 7970 Crossfire is much much more capable of maxing games in the next 3 years assuming that Far Cry 3 8x MSAA is basically the new Crysis... which was the most demanding game for a few years...
