Not sure what kind of feedback you're looking for... looks a bit overkill for a gaming rig.  :prop:

Make sure you got it all plugged into a surge protector, and I hope you didn't slack on the monitor.  :popcorn:

Yes, a Belkin 3020w protector.  The monitor is a Toshiba 42" 3D 240Hz tv.  The games that I have that can be played in 3D look awsome, as well as 3D movies.  I also use this PC for building programs in Excel and Access.  Of the 32gb of ram, 20gb is used for a Ram Drive when I am playing games, so there is no lag what so ever.  As to the feedback, I have had no luck finding anybody that has a compairable system except on Ebay and I am just trying to see how my system stacks up to others out there, thats all.  I do know that it is a extremely fast system :rofl:

I think you would get better responses by posting on a couple of sites dedicated to the games you play, or a user site for your GPU, or Steam.

Consider wording your post with, How good is my system? or  Can I improve my performance? or  How does my system compare?

Some benchmark results would be needed, this may be useful, > http://www.howtogeek...s-while-gaming/
