change 16GB ram into 8GB @ 1600 speed
change i7 to i5 3570k if you are only gaming(saves money)
change OCZ 3 into OZC 4(4 is newer and it seems you are going for better performance so why not choose the newer one)
Change PSU into something like SeaSonic, Corsair, or XFX
if you are going with an SSD no need for a high performance HDD
change HDD into spinpoint f3 and combo it with a dvd drive
OPTIONAL:combo extreme4 with 500R case
OPTIONAL:change H100 into noctua air cooling
OPTIONAL:if going with NOCTUA then change ram into Low Profile rams
OPTIONAL:combo H100 with CPU http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?Ite...
with H100 you do not need Low profile rams
