Although this doesn't have ECC ram. It does have about equivalent specs. Not to mention the much better graphics and it's fully watercooled. Also the price. I even got the pci-e ssd in there! Although really apple only 256gb storage in a 3,000 dollar computer?

You say "i only have 120mm options". What do you mean? The kraken x60 is the best. But it is 280mm.

COD Ghosts is coded like ****. No sugarcoating it. The pc version is the direct port from the xbox. It tells you to connect to xbox live when you start up the game. Not too many people on pc play COD anyway because it's just not a good game to them/ there are many better games available.

Video ram. A gtx 760 2gb has 2gb vram. A gtx 770 2gb has 2gb vram. It really doesn't matter unless your doing multi monitor setups, or higher resolution.

The amount of Vram has almost nothing to do with in game performance. I have never seen any game use more than 2gb vram. The real change in performance comes from the number of stream processors/ cuda cores it has.

The most important thing in gaming is the gpu. So you need a strong one. A cheaper cpu like an AMD fx 6300 will perform close to i5. But there would be little to no difference in most games. That's why if you spend less money on the processor you can spend more on the gpu and get higher settings/ better fps. The corsair 200r is a simple case. So it should have a simple price. Here is what i came up with. http://pcpartpicker.com/p/1YwuS

If you search through the search bar in the top right, you would see both of these products are in the system but are out of circulation because they are discontinued.

95.99 for an h80i that gets beat by watercoolers, and air coolers cheaper than it?

3 780s for 2 1080p monitors? Also very overpriced monitors. Asus ROG sli bridge with an Asus workstation class board. 16gb ram. What is this for? Get ready for the downvotes to roll in with a small description. Overpriced power supply. Overpriced watercooler. I don't always get 3 780's, but when i do i get a cheap wireless mouse to go with it. Either way im totally jealous +1 EDIT: -1 FAKE BUILD! seriously?

I listed a 7850 and a 7950 because i showed you that powercolor made the best overclockers of those two cards. Of course you didnt read the whole reply so you didnt know. As for the 7990, and it being the card I "wasted my money on" it is actually the best graphics card available right now. Not sure if your understand it beats a titan at 350$ less. http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/AMD/HD_7990/12.html http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/AMD/HD_7990/7.html

"sacrificing the gpu would of gotten you a solid ssd which would help on OVERALL performance also would of saved you some cash" well you said overall so i assumed you though an ssd would increase in game fps. Look. I suggest you do a little background research yourself. Powercolor isnt the best (asus) but they are no bad brand. As you can see they make some great overclockers. http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/Powercolor/HD_7850_PCS_Plus/31.html http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/Powercolor/HD_7950_PCS_Plus/26.html No i dont use a quick google search. I have techpowerup bookmarked. Honestly the real funny part is that almost everything you have said is wrong and your mad because i told you that you were wrong and i backed up my argument with hard facts. Also if you didnt know this 7990 maxes out crysis 3 and bf4 beta. Most other games it only uses one 7970 and the fans dont kick up above 50%

Getting an ssd does NOT increase performance PERIOD. It increases boot times and load times. 7950 crossfire does not even come close to a 7990, even cf 7970s doesnt. bf3 1920x1200 4xAA cf 7950s,102.5 fps cf 7970s,123.7 fps 7990 145.2 fps. A 20 fps margin. Id say you should backup your facts before you tell people they have alot to learn. http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/AMD/HD_7950_CrossFire/5.html http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/AMD/HD_7990/7.html

It won't bottleneck. Unless your playing some highly cpu intensive only (no gpu) game.

With games only becoming more multi-threaded. I would say they should just shrink the Deneb core.

You want atleast 100 watt clearance. Also everyone runs prime95 so id like to see those numbers. But this was what i found.

http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/Powercolor/HD_7990_Devil_13/25.html Actually a 7990 consumes 551 watts not overclocked. The 7990 alone.
