Anyone have a problem with this build? Anything missing or something that would interfere with something else? It will be used primarily for 1440p gaming. I do need 16GB of RAM, and I do need Windows 7 Pro. The 750w PSU is for future SLI.

You could probably find less expensive case fans. Other than that it looks fine.

Get an EVGA 780 Classified if you're already spending that much on a video card.

Get a better cooler for the 4670K.

Mind want a better cooler, and maybe a little more wattage for sli.

Changed a case fan. The CoolerMaster case fan is going to be in a push-pull set-up with the 212 Evo.

That's a sexy build. I agree that if you're spending that much and are considering SLI later, you may want to look in to more wattage.

Thanks everyone, I'll look into going up a bit on the wattage, probably 850 to be on the safe side of things. Also, does anyone have any opinions on Windows 8? Should I just go for 8 and get it over with or stick with 7 for now?

Its your choice. Windows 8 interface is horrible, but its faster. If you prefer the classic interface use Windows 7.

Instead of wasting money on unneeded wattage, go buy some better hardware like I suggested above.
