Looks like a sweet build. Keep in mind if you plan a second 6970 you'll need a larger power supply if you plan on any overclocking.

600/650w recommended for a single card, or 850w if you plan to crossfire.

Also for gaming, there's no need for more than 8GB RAM so you could save yourself some money there. Also might be worth checking out Samsungs 1TB SpinPoint F3 HDD which is again slightly cheaper than the WD with no lesser performance.

You get what you pay for with the hardrive. I can't stress that enough. I'd stick with the WD Black no doubt.

From reviews I've seen though the SpinPoint actually out performs the Caviar Blacks? And I've not heard of any reliability issues with them...

So the F3 is what 1ms faster? Your gonna notice that?

Your getting 2 more years warranty from the Black.

Samsung F3's haven't even been around long enough to see reliability issues. WD has been making hdd's for decades.

Like I said, you get what you pay for.

Oh I don't doubt Western Digital's credibility, as you say they have been making HDD's for a long time and are a well established manufacturer. Personally I use SeaGate Barracudas.
