A SSD will help load times and speeds up a PC greatly. 240 GB Intel 520 is what I am using.

well if you want over kill you could switch out the your vid card for this one in the review here NVIDIA GeForce GTX TITAN 6GB Performance Review
and if it is just for gaming get 2 256GB SSDs which is would have allot of game room and don't bother with the hard drives at all

I wouldn't really call that build "overkill". I'd call it adequate.

Yup, adequate is pretty fair. Some parts are old outdated (like that AIO!)

You want 'overkill'?

PSU: 1200AXi Corsair
Ram: 64GB
Mobo: socket 2011 asus Rampage or Deluxe
cpu: 3960X
GPU: Two NV Titans (or three to be sure)
SSD: Two Intel DC S3700 800GB for OS, 1 800 Intel 910 PCI-E SSD, 1 4TB SAS Segate ES.3 Connie
SAS controller: LSI 9 series
Cooler: NZXT Kraken X60 (your eco...is OLD and outdated. get a H100i or H90 at the very least!)
Monitor: Dell U2713H 14bit monster

Cost...about 15 grand. THAT is overkill. :P

Yeah, I would say it's pretty adequate, however, that 3820 CPU is awesome. It's a great performer and will be solid for probably the next 3-4 years. X79 is an awesome platform as well. I would echo AkG and say go for a different AIO. The 670 GPU won't kill Crysis any day, but it's more than adequate for any actual gaming experience that you want.

All in all, there's no such thing as overkill when it comes to PC's.... unless you have Quad Titans (and I'm not even sure that can be done)

Storage:
Expensively Useful (not overkill) would be OCZ Vector or Samsung 840 Pro 512GB SSD. Money flushed down the toilette overkill is Intel 910 PCI-E 400GB
Expensively Useful HDD Seagate Desktop 4TB (efficient, quite, 2 year warranty) or WD caviar Black 4TB (power hungery, noisy, 5 yr). Overkill is Seagate Constellation and WD RE

CPU:
LGA 2011 (X79) i7 3930 overkill, i7 3960 money flushed overkill.
Z77 i7 3770K with PLX equipped motherboard (ROG Extreme or Gigabyte UP7) is expensively useful.

when it comes to GPUs and monitors, as long as these two things are balanced, there is no such thing as overkill. GTX Titans in Tri-SLI feeding triple 2560x1600 monitors in surround is an expensive, yet rewarding purchase. Overkill is when you skimp on one and pay up on the other.

How about you give a budget. (and remember taxes)
With the amount you are willing to spend we can give you a better idea of the components that will give you the best results for the amount you spend.
Also say if you don't need monitor or mouse or keyboard...

Otherwise... 3xTitans and 3xDell 30" monitors and...
