I have been away for a while, and have gotten my build together.
I will post pics of my custom desk and computer when I actually have the time to not be a mess.
I am going to pick up another 7850 in a few weeks, almost considering getting a new power supply just to be safe for my Crossfire setup. I don't want my computer blowing up due to lack of power. I might just upgrade to the SeaSonic X750 for the headroom.
Bought a new system:
Motherboard: Asus Sabertooth Z77, Intel Z77 Chipset
CPU: Intel Core i5 3570K, Ivy Bridge, 3.4GHz, Quad Core, 6MB Cache (OC'd to 4.6ghz)

GPU: 4GB EVGA GTX 690, 915MHz GPU, 3072 Cores, 6008MHz GDDR5
PSU: 850W Corsair Pro Series AX, Modular, (Dual GTX 680 & ATI 7970)
SSD: 256GB Corsair Performance Pro, Marvell SSD, Read 515MB/s, Write 440MB/s
HDD: Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB SATA 6Gbps
Case: 3XS Vengeance Z77 SLI - Custom Series
Mouse: Razer Death Adder

Going to be getting a new 27" screen soon, maybe 2

I just google'd a bit about exactly what sort of a case the "3XS Vengeance" was (because your case is a 600T according to your sig :P) and it turns out they are some kind of service offering high end pre-built systems which you can customize....or maybe they're something else, I can't seem to find a straight result.
Did you buy that whole thing from 3XS or assemble it yourself?

Figured I would throw my system on the list:

Cooler: Zalman CNPS9900max-b
SSD: 160GB Intel 320 series
HDD: 2 TB mixed storage
Keyboard: Logitech G15
Mouse: Razer Naga
Screens: Two LG 23" monitors, 2ms response. 40" Samsung LED TV
i7-4770k - GTX 780 Ti - 16GB DDR3 Ripjaws - (2) HyperX 120s / Vertex 3 120
ASRock Extreme3 - Sennheiser Momentums - Xonar DG - EVGA Supernova 650G - Corsair H80i
So I WAS going to get a second 7850, but I have been reading leaked specs for the upcoming 8850 and 8870, and I might as well go with two 8850's because they are going to have about 70% faster computing power (G/Flops, T/Flops etc) and ~20% performance increases in all other specs for the same price as the 7850 is currently. Hopefully the GPU's use the same size PCB, I like how small the 7850 is.
