Can someone look over this build for me?

It's been a while since I built my last machine, and I haven't been keeping up with the latest hardware advancements. Can you help me? I want more opinions on this build. I would love to hear any suggestions you guys have. Thanks.

More about build
  1. Missing HDD, ODD and OS.
    Case/PSU prices look to be a bit high in total % of build budget.

    You could jump over in the Systems > Homebuilt > New Build section of the forums and ask for help there. The experts there do new system build requests by the dozens every day.
  2. Thanks for the reply.

    I forgot to mention I already have a couple of hard drives, a DVD burner, and Windows 7 64 bit.
  3. Everything you've picked is compatible and high quality - good job there.
    And for the parts you picked - you've picked the lowest prices available ATM too.

    Looks solid. Should be fun to build and should run great for you.
