Gaming focused build.

Let me know your opinion and if anything is wrong or you have a better component, just post it :)
I'm also looking for less price components if there are.

Oh dear, you say this is a gaming focus build but what other purposes since, depending upon the games you're looking to run through it, it's beyond overkill with no real gaming benefits over a much less expensive build on socket 1155.
FAaarrr too much ram for any gaming done these days
