Question Amd-fx 8150 Asus Crosshair V Formula Build??

I've just recently made a massive list after doing loads of research on a rig that i want for gaming but also to impress lol. For some reason I've been drawn to AMD so this is what i wish to stick with but i would like some comments of experience with certain parts of this build and theoretical overclock speeds this rig might be able to produce. also any improvements on the rig will be welcome but i don't really want to spend much more money on this.

Here the rig i have planned:

Mobo: asus crosshair v formula

cpu: amd-fx 8150

g-card: tri-fire msi lightning radeon hd 6970

psu: ENERMAX Platimax 1200W Modular Power Supply Platinum rated

memory: corsair vengance CMZ8GX3M2A1600C8 (4x4gb)

Case: Corsair Obsidian 650d

SSD: OCZ Vertex 3 Series - MAX IOPS Edition 120GB

HDD: 3x 1TB WD Caviar Black (for raid)

Cooling: Corsair H100 with Corsair Link (custom fans x4 Noctua NF-F12 PWM 120mm), Noctua NF-F12 PWM 120mm exhaust fan, NZXT FN 200RB 200mm front intake Fan


I have more parts like burners, monitors etc but they are quite irrelevant tbh lol

Change the SSD if you're set on OCZ for a particular reason get the 4 not the 3 better stability looks like so far uses a marvell controller so handles compressible and uncompressible the same unlike sandforce. Otherwise I'd get the Samsung 830 for reasons I listed in another post.

The G.SKILL Sniper Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 (PC3 14900) Desktop Memory Model F3-14900CL9D-8GBSR works well even with two sets(use 2T).
I saw this set at newegg today;G.SKILL Sniper Gaming Series 16GB (4 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2133 (PC3 17000) Desktop Memory Model F3-17000CL11Q-16GBSR. It is recommended for AMD Llano/AM3+ platforms.
