Hey guys, I will be buying a new computer tonight from CyberPowerPc.com. I have picked out all of the parts, and I think I made good choices. I will not be building this system, and I am sure I want to buy from cyberpower.
Do you guys think there is something I should change? Anything that will bottle neck the system? Or anything you guys would like to say before I purchase it in a few hours :) 

System specs:
CPU: Intel® Core™ i5-2500K 3.30 GHz 6M Intel Smart Cache LGA1155 (All Venom OC Certified)
HDD: 1TB SATA-III 6.0Gb/s 32MB Cache 7200RPM HDD (Single Hard Drive)
MEMORY: 8GB (4GBx2) DDR3/1600MHz Dual Channel Memory Module [+74] (Corsair Vengeance [+19])
MOTHERBOARD: [CrossFireX] Asus P8Z68-V LX Intel Z68 Chipset DDR3 ATX Mainboard LucidLogix Virtu and Intel Smart Response Technology & 7.1 HD Audio, GbLAN, USB3.0, 2x SATA-III RAID,2 3 PCIe Gen2, 2 PCIe X1 & 2 3CI (All Venom OC Certified) [+0]
SOUND: HIGH DEFINITION ON-BOARD 7.1 AUDIO
VIDEO: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 570 1.2GB 16X PCIe Video Card [+177] (Major Brand Powered by NVIDIA)
Total is $1285
Included in the price is the safe shipping, professional wiring, and a corsair 750tx cpu. Is this good build? Anything I can change.

I tried making a new system at cyberpower and I managed to make the same exact system for $1182 which is $103 saved. I really do not know how I managed that lol. I just checked everything and it is the exact same thing but $100 dollars saved.

Anyone have anything to say? I really want to place an order asap.
Anything wrong with it?

+1 to what P07H34D said -- Hyper 212+ is inexpensive & well-regarded.

Regarding the RAM -- if that's the RAM that has the tall fins, you may wish to opt for a lower profile model -- those tall fins can get in the way of some heatsinks.

If you search on NewEgg for Corsair Vengeance, you'll see the two models.
