For games you don't need anything more than the i5 3570k, anything more is just wasted money.

Ram is the same problem, 8gb is plenty, any more is wasted money.

Cooler - Don't need liquid cooling unless you're going for really big clocks, if this is the case you want custom loops as pretty much any closed loop system will be equalled by a good air cooler.

10,000rpm drives are pretty much non sense these days, if you want a fast drive SSD is an infinitely better investment.

Mobo - In line with CPU, this is way overkill, a decent z77 board will suffice.

PSU - Not listed but it's probably crap.

GPU - In a rig this price it's way underdone and completely disproportionate to the CPU. For a gaming rig you want much better at this price range.

Sound card - Unless you're a big audiophile or into music production it's not necessary.

Ill post up a cheaper and better build shortly.

A socket 1155 3570K and a decent quality motherboard with a Z77 chipset will perform just as well in games at a fraction of the cost

Use a 2 x4 gig kit of RAM . More will not help game performance

Use an SSD as a boot drive . 128 gig is enough for most people

Spend more on the graphics card . Assuming you have a 1080p monitor then a 7950 is easily in your budget , and so are the top end nVidia cards

The sound card is probably not any better than the onboard sound, and definitely not better if its connected to computer speakers

With any single graphics card set up you are going to need a 600 watt power supply . 750 watt should let you use two graphics cards

The asetek cooler isnt needed with Ivy Bridge cpu's

and since the case is "open air"I hope there is no dust where you live

Here you go, should do you better and much cheaper, also room to xfire in the future if you like. If not can get a cheaper PSU.

Just my personal choice but I'd go with the Antec 1100 as a case .

And the Gigabyte Windforce 7970

But thats the perfect example of how to save $700 and at least double the game performance , and make the system 10 times more responsive while burning half as much electricity

Thank you both for your help, so basically the computer parts are just way to much power it;ll be slow and a lot of it is overkill? whats the point of an i7 cpu then?

i7's are more useful for people doing heavy editing work, large 3d renders etc.

Some parts are overkill, some are very underdone.

The build i listed has much more balanced components that work together more proportionately and as such will perform much better for your needs.
