good's my build-
total-$1,504 before rebates.
NZXT phantom for $120 is a very sweet deal.don't miss ;) 
HDD prices are high but caviar black 1tb for $130 seems a good buy.
fastest single gfx.crossfire in future to have killer eyefinity setup.single is enough to max out any game at 1080p.
top quality psu is more than enough for crossfire and future upgrades.
mobo supports,sli/cfx,overclocking,pcie 3 and much more.
add that 200mm fan on top of case for better ventilation.
note:every part is high quality and build.
good luck ;)

He can save $60 by switching to DVD Burner and use the $60 to upgrade to a Corsair Carbide 500R.
