Isn't $2500 still a bit much? Unless you've got money to throw away, which isn't any of my business, I wouldn't go for something so expensive. Unless of course you're planning on running something so high tech you have to get all this stuff.

Anyway I don't know what you want it for so I can't really comment. I would say Windows 7 instead of 8 but again it depends what you're going to use it for.

Your build is solid, also good choice going with a SSD drive. My only suggestion would be to go with Windows 7 like Konata said. Great to see you back again Elle.

Well, I am just working on building a computer that can run games efficiently, is future-proof for the most part, and the parts that aren't are easily upgradable, and has decent processing capabilities for video editing and program compiling. I will adding 2 more 780's by November.

The reason I went with windows 8 is because I will be attaching a touch screen and at some point, integrating a kinect sensor. And also because of the rapid boot times. I have a PC with last gen hardware that boots in 7 seconds with Windows 7, I'd like to lower that to an almost instant boot and seeing as Windows 8 has a way faster boot time, I think I may be able to achieve that.

I'm thinking with the SSD, I'm going to install my OS and reserve the rest for cache space. Any opinions on that?
