I will be overclocking this later down the line, but more than likely not right at the start. I try to only upgrade every couple years, so I'm hoping this system will last atleast 2yrs. Is there anything I should change, or any issue that would come up from this parts list? Thanks.

I don't see any big problems here. You seem set if you intend to overclock. You've got a great power supply. You've got a great video card. You've got a great everything pretty much.

Seems like you're set to me.

If you're going to OC, then by all means get the legendary GameXstream 600W - it was made for OCIng.

(about half the price of your psu tooXD)

The places where I found better prices I didn't like.

For example, for some reason Ewiz wouldn't let me add a DVD-RW drive to my cart.

Plus NewEgg has a great rep :D .
