Lol I read that 90GB Kingston HyperX as RAM and was like dafuq??

Looks good to me, but I would get an Intel, OCZ, or Crucial SSD over the Kingston.

Also, I'm under the impression that with that liquid cooler you will be OCing, and with that in mind I don't recommend switching to Ivy Bridge later.

Judging by the way the OP was typed, I assume this is from Ibuypower of Cyberpower? Why not build your own, and save a few bucks? And for the GPU, unless you're getting a good deal on it go with the regular version. OC'ing a GPU is stupidly simple

It's really easy. Think of it as building Legos. Everything fits in one place, and if it fits in more than one place, chances are it doesn't matter where you put it. Here's a tutorial:
