Hello everyone,

after twelve years of laptop only sadness I decided to build my own gaming rig again.
I've done a little research and this is what I've come up with. Any opinion and/or advice is welcome.

Target is $2000.00, lower is better. :kaola: 
There will be some parts where I will list some alternatives as I am undecided/ not well informed.

Case:
Cooler Master HAF 922 - Mid
Corsair Obisidian Case (Full: $255, Half: $160 - $180)
Thermaltake Chaser MK-1: $130
Or ?

Mobo:
ASUS Sabertooth X79: $330

Processor:
Intel Core i7-3820: $292 - $300

CPU Cooler:
CORSAIR Hydro Series H100: $115
Or?

Graphics:
EVGA 02G-P4-2678-KR GeForce GTX 670 FTW 2GB: $390

RAM:
Corsair Vengeance Green 16GB (4x4GB) DDR3 1600 MHz: $100
CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB): 2x $40
Or?

SSD:
Corsair Force Series GT: $125

Data Drive:
Western Digital Caviar Black 2T: $160 - $170

Power Supply:
Rosewill CAPSTONE Series CAPSTONE-750-M 750W: $110
RAIDMAX RX-850AE 850W ATX12V: $120
CORSAIR HX Series HX750 750W: $150
Here I really don' t know. I'd rather have a gold rated one thing.

Blu-Ray Drive:
Asus Black 12X BD-ROM 16X DVD-ROM: $60
Or?

Bling:
NZXT Sentry-2 5.25" Touch Screen Fan Controller $25


So there it is. Does this seem like a valid build or did I do horribly?
Let me know if you know of better/cheaper things I should be considering that will not affect or improve the performance.
