Yea, you'll be able to play whatever you want on ultra. That built is awesome but pure overkill, I would give for that build. Mine was on a very tight budget but I managed to successfully make a rig under 900$(including gaming mouse/keyboard/monitor) that can play anything on ultra at above 40FPS.

Default Re: Rate my future gaming rig

if you're going with all in one liquid cooling, go for a thicker radiator like the 570 model or a corsair H80i, it'll keep your processor cooler. Also, if you're going to mount this where the exhaust fan normally goes, you'll loose the ability to mount a fan in the top slot of the door. if you decide to mount to the top, you may lose the ability to mount a fan on the rear as well as the door fan. Depending on exactly how tall the case is and on whether you decide to use "push/pull" or "push or pull" fan config.

if you plan to mount the cooler to the top, and don't care about losing a few fan mounts, DEFINITELY look into getting the corsair H100i. It's twice as long, 120x240mm, and offers more cooling power.
