    You did great for the price.

    - Those video cards will be very close on your board and the one will get hotter... but should be OK

    - I don't see any major issue with the case, probably OK for the price.

    I don't care for recent reports regarding Samsung labor conditions (subsidiaries and such) and I've always found Western Digital to be the most reliable. Some of their NEWEST drives are quite fast:

    That's all I have to say, pretty good build.
  2. I would go with the Cooler Master HAF 922 for your case.

    Rest of your build looks good... IMO
  3. Thanks! Any particular reason on the HAF 922 over the one I have?
  4. I am currently researching a rig that is very similar. One suggestion I can make is maybe looking at the Hyper 212 Plus Universal CPU Cooler. http://www.microcenter.com/single_product_results.phtml?product_id=0315397. They seem to be highly praised around here and are $30.
  5. Thanks Aphelion, good suggestion, I'll definitely look into it.
  6. Thanks for the help everyone, all ordered. Wish me luck! I'll probably be posting soon needing help putting it all together :)
