Link to the enermax case? Also, is this mainly for gaming? If it's mostly for gaming, then I give it a 7/10.
You could cut down on the motherboard + psu to get a 7790.

yea the mb is a bit of an overkill and so are the psu. If this is for gaming I would give it a 6. cpu + gpu being main reasons.

Yeah shave money off elsewhere and get this build
Your CPU picked out is fine but I would suggest a stronger gpu for 1080p or higher (good for 900p)
MB takes up too much of the budget

Here is a nice SLI/CFX mb with a 7790

We have no clue where he's buying the parts from and what his budget is, so it's hard to assemble a better build.

On a $650 budget I would get this, an intel i5 build is outside your price range unless you drop the GPU to a 7870ghz

Dang, psus are expensive at newegg. A FX-6300 with a 970 motherboard allows for overclocking in the future when you have enough for an aftermarket cooler.
Cheap, low-profile ram so any cpu cooler will fit.
Radeon HD 7850 will max out any game on your resolution and will work nicely if you upgrade to 1080p

You could get better performance if you're willing to buy from one or two other websites.
