Greetings, yet again. Here are my final specs for my new build - unless any suggestions are made that seem immensely superior!

Mobo: Asus SABERTOOTH Z77 - $259
CPU: Intel Core i7 3770k LGA1155 Ivy Bridge - $374
Thermal: Arctic Silver 5 Thermal Grease - $15
RAM: G Skill 16G(4x4G) DDR3 1600Mhz - $109
Case: CoolerMaster HAF X 942 Black No PSU - $189
+1 Top Fan: CoolerMaster 20CM Red Led Case Fan - $16

SSD: OCZ Agility 3 120G SATA3 SSD - $119
HDD: 1TB spare - $0
GPU: Sapphire ATI HD7970 3GB GDDR5 2MDP/HDMI - $509
Optical: LG Black BlueRay SATA LightScribe Writer Retail - $88

Grand Total: $1828

I have worked on this build for about four months, altering as things came out (thank god for ivy bridge!). Anyway, any suggestions to improve would be appreciated - thanks again.

P.S. I live in Australia, so if prices are high it is because I cannot obtain components from Newegg (Umart is the cheapest part trader in Australia).
