Looking for some critique on a corei7 build

I've been piecing together a core i7 build and this is what I came up with. I'd like to be set for a good while so that's why I went for the 4870x2.
I already have a keyboard and mouse

Antec TPQ-850 850W ATX12V

Kingston 6GB 1333MHz DDR3

(I Couldn’t find the RAM on NewEgg but I’ll be ordering all this from Belgium anyway)

This will amount to some 1500€ (1900$) and that's about my limit. I don't have any experience overclocking but I'd like to try eventually with this set. I'll probably need a better cooler than the stock one but I haven't looked into what will fit on this combination.
If you have some advice or critique on this build please speak up. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

  1. Ditch that PSU and go with this one -

    You don't really need 850 watts of power for that system, and this is a high quality PSU for the price.

    If you can't stand the red, you can pay a bit more for this -

    Personally, I would go with a CM690 over the tempest, but they are both excellent cases. Just a personal choice IMO -

    I've been hearing bad things about the spinpoint's reliability. If you can get away with only 640gb of space, I would HIGHLY recommend the 640gb caviar black from WD -

    It's the fastest 7200rpm HDD on the market. If you can afford two, they make for a wicked RAID 0 configuration.

    The coolermaster V8 is a solid cooler for the i7 chipset, but others may disagree and offer different advice. -

    I hope some of this helps!
  2. If you're looking at coolers, the TRUE seems to be really popular on i7. Just make sure you purchase the proper conversion/retention bracket.
  3. Thanks for your input :)
  4. Also, if you like the 1tb size, the same drive fooly mentioned comes in a tb, and utilizes similar platter density.
