Feedback is appreciated. Total appears to be $870 after mail-in rebates. (I already have a GTX560 to OC for the video card)

Thanks!

Unless you're thinking of going SLI later on, you could drop to a 650W PSU...look at XFX and Seasonic. Same internals, prices vary. Other than that, it's a good looking build...I LOVE that case. :)

That looks really good actually. I have the Graphite 600T and while I love it, I will tell you that is huge and heavy and not easily transportable. If you move your computer around for any reason I'd suggest looking at the slimmer Carbide 500R:

Also don't get that RAM if you plan on using the Hyper 212 - the tall heat sinks are a menace to large coolers. Try one of these RAM sets - they would be far better:

Ahh, good call on the fins on that ram. I may go with the corsair memory in the first link you provided. Thanks very much!

(Also, I don't plan on moving the PC around at all. It will sit underneath my desk in my office. I did read that they are quite heavy though) :)
