I have been out of the game for about 10 years and getting back into building my own system. Here is my setup, let me know what you think.

MB: http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/ite...
CPU: http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/ite...
Video card x2: http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/ite...
Case: http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/ite...
PSU: http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/ite...
HD: http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/ite...
Memory: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Cooling: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
CD: I am using my cd/dvd burner from my old system, it works well and no reason to replace it

- I had a goal to keep it under $1300 and was able to do this after rebates (some had better rebates when ordered)
- I have not received all my parts yet so i suppose i could return anything but I read a lot of reviews before choosing and think I will be happy

This would be the only change I would suggest , You don't need a water cooling setup for the 2500k cpu it will cool on air just fine , even if you overclock it to 4.5 ghz.

I too would vote in favor of a proper heat-sink instead of that closed loop. Other than that, its a very nice build for the budget.
