  1. sup man, ur build is perfect, no problem, but if u want a cheaper better looking case u can choose this one http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811119197&cm_re=haf-_-11-119-197-_-Product
  2. 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.
  4. the spinpoint f3 is also faster
  5. Yeah I decided to go with the spinpoint, and this case/psu still not completely sold over the lan li and xfx combo.
