What do you guys think? Did I do good? Is there anything you would have done differently?

looks like an amazing build. The only thing i would have done differently is go for a western digital caviar black instead of a western digital caviar blue.

Have you bought this already? I would suggest some changes if you have not.

It will be OK

Using last years models of cpu, mb and OS is questionable
The arctic silver just a waste of money

Was on a budget so this is the best I could do. Right now I can max out just about every single game on the highest settings at 1080p with 60+ FPS, with the exception of games like Crysis. And the Arctic Silver was only like 6 dollars.

it doesn't matter if he's using last years cpu, mobo and os they run fine and he has his cpu overclocked to 4.4ghz so its preforming great and he paid less.

Nothing bad about the system. :)  Just would have made a few minor tweaks. :)

The extra fans you didnt need + the arctic silver cost you $52

Add $52 to your monitor budget and you could have easily had a 24 inch monitor , or the latest cpu/mb

Actually I got the 4 extra fans as a value pack. The 4 fans only cost me 11 dollars total. The fans and thermal paste dropped my CPU temperature under load by over 25C.
