Raid 0 for the SSD's seems a bit overkill for me, single SSD for the OS and the software should be more than enough, the rest could go to the HDD. The Kinect is not much useful yet, so better wait a bit more, you can always get it at a later time. Other than that the rest of the specs are very good, hopefully you will be happy with the two AMD GPUs and the Samsung 3D monitor ;)

If you are not in a hurry and wait just a bit more you should be able to also see what new Nvidia comes up with and decide if it might be a better choice to go for 3D Vision with dual GeForce GPUs in SLI...

thats a good suggestion like you said nvidia gtx 680 rumours are hitting the net everyday also epic games recently showcasted samaritan demo on single kepler card while gtx 580 tri sli was required to run dat demo , it is rumoured that gtx 680 will launch within march according to many sources so let me wait for another 2-3 weeks

i told my friends about these specs they told me to buy i7 3770k ivy bridge processor which is quad core
and im planning to buy i7 3930k which is 6 core processor i want my pc to last for atleast 3-4 years so should i go with i7 3930k or i7 3770k processor ?

will i7 3770k last me for 4 years ?

also im getting 2X120gb corsair force gt in raid 0 because
corsair 240gb ssd costs $330
corsair 120gb ssd costs $170

therefore 2X120gb and 240gb ssd's costs de same therefore im getting it as 2x120gb raid 0 coz raid 0 performs faster yeah i know it is overkill but im nt spending extra amount buddy

plz answer my above question thx

At the moment it is hard to say what will "last" for even one or two years, let alone for more... ;)

This hardware should be very good and capable of providing great performance for a few years, but you should still have in mind that some things might need to be upgraded in time to keep it top of the line. Generally for gaming the CPU is becoming less of a requirement compared to the video card, so even with a quad core processor you should be fine. With this setup the only thing that might need an upgrade in a year or two is the video cards, although they should still be providing more then enough performance.

AMD and Nvidia are quite fast on bringing new products on the market and now only with the latest generations it took them a bit loner than usual, Intel is also fast on bringing new chipsets and processors, so it is to be expected that in four years for example the current hardware will be a few generations old. Although it might not be that much slower in terms of performance, you might want to get some extra new features that are currently not available and that could be more serious reason for upgrade than the need of more performance...
