Cosmos 2 case
i4770k
2 sli 780 asus(was thinking about the 290x - however the 780's have just come down £100.00!!)
gigabyte g1 sniper 5(supposedly has amazing graphics already on board and looks like it could be a few years future proof). Does this card have problems with asus 780's?
16 gig vulcan red 1600
samsung 840 (120g)- Is the pro version worth it?
3tb barracuda HD
ocz 80 gold 1000 watt power supply
I already have a dell 27 inch 1440p monitor which is awesome, but that is the main reason for the dual graphics.

Looks good. The 840 pro isnt worth the extra money over the regular 840 IMO, the extra performance isn't noticeable.

looks good, I don't see any problems. What game would you mainly be playing?

I will be playing BF4 , witcher 2, hitman( the later two just do not work on my alienware lappy)

Its fine, any of the 80 gold PSUs are good. But anything also from corsair, seasonic etc are good. Ive been using a OCZ modxstream 500w for the last 3 or so years and its been fine.

You should consider Samsung 840 EVO instead of the regular 840. The 840 Pro is the faster than the other SSD's but if you're not willing to pay the extra for the 840 Pro, you should definitely go for the 840 EVO.

+1

If the cost isnt much more, the 840 evo is worth getting over the regular 840.
