not a big fan of modular power supplies.
If money is not an issue, for a few extra bucks you can get a PC Power & Cooling power supply. (awesome)

You should really look in to SLI.

You can buy two lower tier video cards, SLI them and outperform the one you have currently. And it will be cheaper than that also

Personally, I am not a fan of the closed loop water coolers. You are better off getting a high end air cooler that will give you better cooling for a cheaper price. Or if you want to actually get your feet wet, and get into real water cooling, get a XSPC rasa kit. They are about $130.00 with all the parts you need and give you awesome cooling. I have one and IRC the max temps I have ever seen are 65C on my hottest core. Keep in mind thats my 2500K clocked at 4.8 Ghz at 1.37 volts. Here is a link to the cooler. http://www.frozencpu.com/products/11743/ex-wat-159/XSPC_Rasa_750_RS240_Universal_CPU_Water_Cooling_Ki t_-HOT.html

The video card is obviously the best you can get. I don't know how soon you need your build, but maybe hold off on the card and get a cheaper card until the southern island cards from amd come out. They are suppose to be out Q4 2011 and are speculated to be a huge upgrade since amd is doing a die shrink from 40nm to 28nm. I think you can do the math on that one.

For your cpu, unless you are doing heavy video editing you really don't need the hyper threading and the 2600k. IMO you are better off saving the $100 and getting the 2500k.

IMO always get modular PSU's, but I am a wire management freak.

Other than that, everything is solid.

I like to show off my build. Here's a pic lol

OP, what are you going to be using your pc for?

Cause if its not for video editing and artsy crap like that then then i7 is useless....

With as much as you're spending, I would get a caviar black or a high performance seagate drive, blue is just meh. It's only another 10-20 bucks.
