My System Specs


Overall the build looks good. A few points to consider:

The 7770 is great, but currently overpriced IMO. I always recommend a single faster card vice crossfire/SLI. I would recommend going to a single 7870 in this case (or a 7850 if you want to keep the cost down some more).

I would switch to an i5 CPU if I was you (2500k if you will OC or 2400/2500 if you will not). Check out the HWC review of the 8150 if you haven't already here. 8150 is only faster in a few situations and uses substantially more power.
