My System Specs

Default

Hi all,

I am finally almost ready to place the orders for my build, I was hoping I could run this by the community and get some final tweaking feedback before I go through with my purchase! I am pretty novice, so any advice or approvals will be much appreciated. I based my nomination for GPU off of the recent hardware canucks review for surround/eyefinity GPU setups.

Please see my build below, and I thank you for your help in advance (I'm excited for this!) <3
