Hey there gang, just curious to see what y'all think of my build. It's going to be for all around use and I wanted it to be powerful enough to handle anything I throw at it for the most part.

Case - Thor V2

Mobo- GIGABYTE GA-Z77X
PSU- SeaSonic X 750w
RAM- 2x Samsung 4GB DDR3 1600
GPU- GIGABYTE Radeon HD 7950 3GB
HDD- Samsung Spinpoint 1TB
CPU Fan- COOLER MASTER Hyper 212
Optical Drive- LG 14x Blue Ray burner

Very nice spec. Just don't go throwing sticks and stones at it.

Hahaha, I'll try my best to not just be a lurker.

Random follow up question about my build. If I'm going to use my TV as a second monitor should I use a Crossfire setup or just stick with the one card?

Thanks for the quick reply. I just wanted to make sure I wouldn't have any hiccups while watching/playing on my TV.
