My System Specs

Default Need feedback onX79 build

Well, my rig is getting old(not really old, but not as high end as it was "back in the days") so i thought it would be a good idea to replace it. I will use my computer mostly for gaming. The budget is around 3000 euros or 3800 dollars, but less money i spend the better. I am not getting anything from my older build because it will be given to my brother...
1- CPU: intel i7 3930K (dont try to convince me otherwise)
2- Motherboard: MSI BIG BANG XPOWER II X79 (this is fo sure, dont try to convince me otherwise)
3- Case: Silverstone TemJin Window SST-TJ11B-W
4- Power supply: 1200w(because i will either upgrade later to sli or buy a pair of future gtx 680, so gimme opinions )
5- Graphics card: GTX 580 3gb, i want a reference card so i dont get surprises; keep in mind that this is only temporary until the gtx 600 series come out
6-Sound Card:(onboard for now)
7-Ram: Mushkin Redline 993997
8- SSD: i am thinking of 3 Mushkin Chronos Deluxe in raid 0 but i dont know how the performance boost will compare with 2 ssd in raid 0 wich i have now(many opinnions needed) 9-Dvd burner/writer: Asus DRW-22B2S/BLK/B/AS 22x Internal CD/DVD Drive
10- cooling: i will watercool(i dont think this is the right place to post these parts, so for now i wont post anything)

11-Peripherals: 11.1-Monitor: Benq XL2420T, becouse i want 3d
Keyboard: Steelseries 7G, because i want cherry mx black switches
11.2-Mouse: Razer Mamba, honestly just because it is wireles and looks cool...

So gimme some feedback

well an 850 or 1050 watt psu will drive atleast 2 580s easily so no need for a 1200 watt. and are you really set on that 580 cause for about the same you can get a 7970 and have a boost from 30 to 60% better performance before you overclock it and i think the difference between 2 and 3 ssds in raid 0 is minimal and could cause more problems than anything

You want feedback...

A very nice machine BUT


Your spending money on top hardware that you don't need to play games that can't use most of what your paying for anyway..

If your really going to be playing games as the main (and most stressful) thing this box will be used for then I would consider this build to be an act of idiocy.

That's my feedback. (and putting it lightly)
