Looks good Saviour! Make sure your PSU has the 8-pin power connector, that's not common. Good job.

I would figure that most of the 7970's bugs will be fixed by driver updates + You should get a nice FPS increase also

When I build a system from the ground up I usually start with the motherboard/cpu....that will determine what type and speed ram you can use.....Potential pitfalls to look out for.....Incompatible ram, got burned on that once

They can't ship to you, but this site has a great configurator, lots of fun to play with iBUYPOWER Gaming PC: Custom Gaming Computers and Laptops

+1 on the socket situation but aside from that it looks awesome and it will look even better with three of these if the budget allows !
