    Welcome to the ROG Forum!

    If you want to go 3-way SLI, then you will need to upgrade your PSU too... perhaps over 1000W - but right now it's fine

    Not sure why you need so many HDDs, but an SSD for the OS and other applications will be the most rewarding upgrade...

    Hi stigping

    All looks OK to me except I wonder about the cooler. If you are getting the 4770K I presume you will want to be OCing it? If so, I would say you should think about a really high end air cooler or a H100i. The 4770Ks are hot CPUs and are limited by what you can get out of them by heat so the cooler you can keep it the better.

    Tri SLI and you might want a bigger PSU too....

    i dont like liquid cooling systems because it takes time to clean and stuff so if theres any good fans that will fit in here, i will take a look at that!
    i have checked some noctua's.

    Or this http://www.coolermaster.com/product/Detail/cooling/cpu-air-cooler/v8-gts.html

    The liquid cooling H100i is closed loop so there's no cleaning the loop etc if that's what you mean. if you buy a coupke 780tis I would go 1000w min or 1200 for max comfort running all that OCd
