You don't have a graphics card? Probably the most important item in any gaming PC.

Few Suggestions:
a. 7870 is a solid card, but you may be better off waiting for a higher end model to drop in price. I managed to pick up a 7950 for 170 a little while ago.
No guarantees on a price drop, though.
b. that case is a little overkill for that build. (unless you plan an upgrade in the future).
-on that note, i highly recommend the nzxt phantom 410 gunmetal, awesome looking case
c. Hard drive? SSD?

I plan on upgrading in the future, which is why I chose that case, for the HDD I already have one purchased so I did not decide to put it on there, but it is a Westerd digital caviar Black 64 mb cache 7200 rpm and 1 tb, I am planning on getting the computer very soon, so I will probably stick with the 7870 GHZ edition, I earlier planned on getting the MSI 7870 GHZ edition but it no longer shows on the video card section of PCpart picker and newegg says they are out of stock on it.

you don't need the paste............. true, very expensive case for any build.......... i always find a way to keep it under $75..... yup, I'm cheap............. but that means an upgrade to the system............... an SSD or a bigger graphics card.... 7950 maybe? spend the money where it counts.

otherwise a better than entry level pc build.

I just got rid of the Thermal paste, I already have the case purchased, so can't change that. The 7950 is 60$ more than my current one, and I cant spend that much more.
