I originally posted a thread previously like this and did some revisions based on your advice. This is my revised PC build. I plan on overclocking this system so give me your thoughts.

Here it is, Thanks for the time and consideration,

Hey, sorry I mean no offence whatsoever, but that's an odd choice for a hard drive.. Did you choose it to cut back on costs? I think 1TB of WD Black, Samsung Spinpoint, or Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 is the standard now. I might be wrong but that's what I get out of all the stuff I read. Otherwise I think your build looks fantastic!

EDIT: I just looked at thew hard drive link and saw that it was $60 total, now I'm going to have to recommend getting something like this instead for the same price - much faster and bigger. SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3 HD103SJ 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive
