Need to research a little for proper feedback but I do have a some immediate points to make
Case: * Coolermaster HAF-X Gaming Full Tower Case w/ 1x230mm Red LED Fan, 1x200mm Fans, 2xFront USB 3.0 Port [+100]
Seems like a lot for a gaming case and it only comes with the one fan? Look around for other possible options unless this particular case just *looks right*.
CPU: Intel® Core™ i7-2600K 3.40 GHz 8M Intel Smart Cache LGA1155 (All Venom OC Certified)
I believe this is the most recent CPU they released? If so, you might save a lot of bucks just going back one step.
Cooling Fan: Asetek 570LX Liquid Cooling system w/ 240MM Radiator and Dual Fans (Extreme Overclocking Performance + Extreme Silent at 20dBA) [+43]
Gotta love liquid cooling. Not familiar with this particular cooler though.
Motherboard: [CrossFireX/SLI] Asus P8P67 Deluxe Intel P67 Chipset DDR3 ATX Mainboard w/ UEFI, DIGI+VRM, 7.1 HD Audio, BT GO! Dual GbLAN, USB3.0, 2x SATA-III RAID, 3 Gen2 PCIe, 2 PCIe X1 & 2 PCI [B3 Stepping] [+123]
With motherboards always, ALWAYS do some research on their reliability. It may be a real scorcher at first but, it may have some reliability issues.
Memory: 8GB (2GBx4) DDR3/1600MHz Dual Channel Memory Module (Kingston HyperX [+66])
If possible, go for a 4 RAM chip setup. This is in case of RAM failure at some point.
Video Card: AMD Radeon HD 6950 2GB GDDR5 16X PCIe Video Card [+59] (Major Brand Powered by AMD)
Video Card 2: AMD Radeon HD 6950 2GB GDDR5 16X PCIe Video Card [+335] (Major Brand Powered by AMD)
No comment other than it seems a tad pricey and I believe it is the newest cards out by AMD?
Power Supply Upgrade: 1200 Watts - Corsair Professional Series CMPSU-AX1200 80 Plus Gold Power Supply [+252]
This PSU seems a bit excessive. Unless you have certain components demanding such a huge power supply (video cards being the big culprit here), step this down some to around the 800-900w range.
Hard Drive: 64 GB A-Data S501 V2 SATA III 6.0G/s Gaming MLC Solid State Disk [+12] (Single Hard Drive)
Data Hard Drive: 120 GB Intel 510 2.5 inch SATA III 6.0G/S Gaming MLC Solid State Disk [+335] (Single Hard Drive)
IMHO, only get a single SSD for the system. Use it as the primary hard drive for your OS. For the data drive, get a normal hard drive (SATA-3/6) for cheaper and with a considerably larger capacity.
Also, research the reliability on your manufacturer's SSD. Right now, many SSDs have a short life span. This technology is still a work in progress. Once that technology has matured, look into an external ( or add an internal yourself ) to augment your system.
All in all looks decent. The price tag scares me a bit knowing that I can typically assemble a solid system for less than 1k :) Of course, I do all my own repairs and such so...
P.S. This post was made without any proper research on my part. When I get the chance I will look deeper into it.
