Yeah I was actually going to go for that case, but the Case/PSU is a combo so I think I will stick with it. And thanks I think the build will be very good.

Any more critiques or criticisms?

I just got that case/PSU combo (except with the 850W PSU), and you should be very happy with it.

For the HDD, people almost always recommend the Spinpoint F3. Although, with the current discount on the WD drive, there's not really a big price difference.

For RAM, you may want to get a set with tighter timings like this

Otherwise, looks like a good build.
