I've been spending some time lately on the web reading and learning more and I think I've finally put my best build for my price range together, but I just want some feedback from some experienced builders.

Specs:
EVGA Superclocked GTX 560 1gb
Corsair Professional Series HX750 750W
Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus
Cooler Master HAF 932 Full
G. Skill Ripjaw 8gb DDR3 1600
Intel i5 2500k
ASUS P8P67 Deluxe
Arctic Cooling MX-2 Thermal Comp.

CPU/Mobo combo http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?ItemList=Combo.797219

I'm going to be doing some gaming and some overclocking.

Any feedback would be appreciated.

Thanks.

I like the setup so far, but I would go with this motherboard:
ASRock Extreme 3
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
I would also not go with the gtx 560, Either go with the gtx 560Ti:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
or the Radeon 6870, the gtx 560 is overpriced for the performance, and the 6870 is on par with the gtx 560 performance wise:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

I would also not go with the HAF 932 case, yes it's a good case, but you can find a great full size case in the Rosewill Thor:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Since the HAF case is with a combo, go with this RAM:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

If you really want, you can go with this Antec PSU:

I'm not so concerned with my budget as I had previously state, though, I am looking for the best quality.

I have already changed my 560 to the ti, but I like my case, is the thor so much better than the haf?

I haven't heard a lot more good new about the asrock than asus motherboards which is why I went with the asus.

I'm really looking to build a computer that will last me a couple years because I don't quite plan on upgrading to ivy bridge until way later on down the road after it is released.

But then again, I'm barely 17 and I'm a novice when it come to most components.

If you could give me some more suggestion, or tell me rather why you would go with what you suggested over what I have selected, it would be greatly appreciated.

The Thor case is not significantly better then the HAF case, in fact the HAF probably has better airflow, if you have the budget, you can definitely go with the HAF. I went with the components because they're normally cheaper, that's all, if you can afford your components, go ahead. However, if you can afford, go with the gtx 570 instead, it'll allow you to future proof your system more
