I would have dropped the fan controller and put that 60 bucks towards a 955 or actually a 5770 instead of the 5750. There probably would have been 40 left over to get a 790 chipset on the motherboard

Performance > Looks.

Especially considering the HAF 922 has great airflow stock.

Better RAM, better MOBO, better GPU. better HD, better PSU. Slightly better speakers and equivalent fan controller.

Course if you fill out the form in the sticky, we could advise you better. This more of a general gaming oriented build.
