Hey forums, Give me feedback on this build if you could thanks!!

CPU: i5 4670k ($250)
Heatsink: Hyper 212 EVO ($25)
Mobo: Asus z87-A Motherboard ($150)
Ram: Corsair Vengeance 16 gb 1866 MHz ($120)
Storage: Samsung 128 gb SSD Sata III ($130) AND WD Caviar Blue 1tb 7200 rpm hd ($60)
GPU: Asus HD 7970 direct CU 2 ($400)
Case: NZXT phantom 410 ($100)

DVD: random dvd drive ($30)
OS: windows 7 ($100)
Random: Case Fans, NZXT HUE ($60)


This Build totals $1545 which is around the $1500 dollar mark of what I want to spend. This computer will be primarily used for intensive and demanding games such as Metro Last light, Crysis 3, BF 2, SC 2, Skyrim, and others. Will also be using this for programming in the near future, Im majoring in Comp Sci at my university in the fall, so computer will be used for engineering applications, some 3d modeling perhaps.

All help and feedback is very much appreciated.

Looks very good to me.
The GPU is really good no need what so ever to change that.
Same for the CPU.
The memory I would drop down to 8gig no need to go over that really.
The NZXT Hue is really nice I now have one in each of my three rigs.
The rest of your build seems very solid to me. And the only thing I would change at all would be dropping the memory down to 8gig. The rest great.
