I like it fits your need overall I'd 8/10 it. Would swap the cooler for a CM 212+ or 212 Evo and I'm an Nvidia fanboi so -1 on the gpu :) 

Only issue I can think of is make sure the RAM heatspreaders are low profile so they dont block the heatsink

Thanks , do you think the psu is good enough ? Also why switch to the evo 212? Also i think the amd raedon card i have is pretty damn good, and the ram problem, the people will be building my comp . so that wont be a problem!! : )

PSU wise I would personally stick with OCZ, XFX, Corsair or seasonic, I'm not familiar with thermaltake PSU's we dont have it here in the UK so withheld comment.

212 is pretty much best bang for your buck cooler it performs as well or better than many that cost alot more.... your card is good I'm just an unashamed Nvidia fan :)

also, no to Dh14 but yes to cheaper 212 Evo.
