Didn't you just post a thread with similar specs asking for advice of a build you were actually about to make?

Anyway, the specs are all pretty solid. Stupidly excessive, but solid.
If this is a dream/fictional build, then I'm not sure why you stuck with the 920.
Also, I don't know why you picked the V8 when there are far superior coolers for a bit more cash.

Another one? So this time, we can be even more unreasonable with prices? You could always get an industrial tank of LN2 installed in your house and have a permanently chilled computer along with everything else and pay for speakers to be embedded in your walls along with a 100" oled tv

Pretty god but, if you win a lotto, why don't get a core I7 975? and a single GTX 295 wich is better then 4870 X2 ( or 2 295 if sli or crossfire needed )
At all I think that just preference between each and each part that no one can discuss.
This would be a killer build that the only thing I can only assure.

My response was going to be similar to this, but I figured that the OP would think I was serious, and thirty minutes later we would see a thread titled "RATE MY KILLER GAEMING RIG! SRSLY THIS TIME"

You love making lists! I'll bite. If you won the lottery I would change a few things first

LCD NEC LCD3090W-BK-SV $2500

The case you have is a ATI badged one but you have an Intel cpu so change that I would go with the new Corsair case to be honest but in the sake of spending money go with the Lian-Li PC-X2000. $700

Those 4870x2s are no good for a build like this get 2 Asus Mars gtx 295s at a speculated $1700 each. Why not?!

Winning the lottery and no Classified? Dude!

You need the Corsair Dominator 2000mhz 7-8-7-20 kit or the new OCZ Blade 3x2GB PC3-16000 CL7 kit.

Power supply I'd go with the PC POWER and COOLING Turbo Cool 1200w $500

Harddrives I would go with the Intel X25-E Extreme $1000 for 64gb you can't go wrong. Just raid 0 4 of them!

For the CPU you have to go i7 975. $1000

You also need to water-cool this beast so no air-cooling!
