I would recommend getting a different hard drive for your main system drive. If you are a Western Digital fan, then go with either a WD Blue or Black series HDD, as the Green series is not recommended for a system drive. Also, if you are planning on overclocking your cpu, you may want to look into getting an aftermarket heatsink/fan (air or watercooling) that will fit the case you get. One final note, you may want to consider adding an ODD to your list.

I'd like recommend the gtx 760. $250 bucks, which is only $50 more than the 7870. Its also quite better than the 7870 and even somewhat better than the 7950 which is around the $300 mark.

I wont be overclocking at all. As far as your advice regarding ODD is concerned are referring to Optical Drive.
