Post Will this build work?

So I've been saving up for a long time and I finally have enough! This is my build and I want to know if it will work. I couldn't get it to show on the wishlist but there are 3 of the Samsung ssds and two of the gtx 760s.

Amazon.com: Michael Kohan: Wish List

Thanks!

That looks like a really great build to me! You should be able to run alot on that.

That's a pro build honestly. If you want to py an extra 30 or 40 bucks, you can replace that 1 terabyte drive with a 2 terabyte

Then you wouldn't really need the SSD drives

Can i be the one to ask what this w ill be used for? is it just for gaming?

Why the I7 4770k over the I5 4670k $80 wasted if its just for gaming?

Why three 128gb ssd's? just get a Samsung 840 Pro Series 512GB if you need that much ssd space (raid with ssd is pointless)

why two 760's? just get a GTX 780 3GB GDDR5.

And with such a large case would you need the sabertooth mobo?

I also render out video so that's why I went with the i7. About the ssds I was not aware that raid did not improve the speeds if so I'll probably just do what you recommended. The dual 760s perform better than the 780 so I just went with them. What motherboard would you recommend with support for dual graphics cards? I have no idea what's good with computers this is my first time building one. Thanks!

fair enough on the I7 if you do lots of rendering.

And wow, i just checked the dual 760 business and it seems to outperform the titan too????? lol

And also the cpu your buying requires a 1150 socket, the mobo you have choosen is a 2011 socket.

Mobo

Awesome I'll switch motherboards thanks! And yeah the dual 760s are apparently beast. Also, I was thinking of switching the case to the haf xm. What do you think?

The antec you have chosen is a really good case with lots of room and good air flow. The haf xm is also a a great case and is a little bigger and probably looks a little better too.

So I guess that just comes down to preference. Also, do you know of any good wifi/bluetooth cards? I previously chose a pci express wireless card. I saw this on amazon with bluetooth.

Is this all I would need?

So I guess that's just preference. Also, I realized that I wanted bluetooth as well so instead of the pci express wifi card I chose before I found this

Intel Network 6235AN.HMWWB Centrino WiFi Card Advanced-N 6235 Dual Band Bluetooth Retail:Amazon:Computers & Accessories

Is this all I would need? And I'm a bit confused how this would connect to my motherboard.
