New Build: Question Answers / Critiques Wanted!

Hey Guys,

So i'm putting together a new build for both professional and pleasure use.
AKA: AUTOCAD, Gaming (EvE/GW2/BF3 etc) Illustrator, Photoshop...etc.

Note: I'm not an architect and personally find I don't need a Quadro FX


Case: Silverstone Raven 2B

PSU: Corsair TX 650W

MOBO: Asus Z77 Sabertooth

CPU: I5-3570K

GPU: 550Ti [**Temp until the GTX675 finally fricken launches...***]-> Will be selling/SLIing

SSD: Crucial SATA III 256GB

RAM: Corsair 8GB Vengeance Low Profile [ill be poping that up to 16GB pretty soon]


Monitor: BENQ XL2420T 3D Nvidia @ Full HD Monitor


Furthermore I am looking for PURPLE LED Strips.

Has anyone modified:
changing the color?

Could I just get a different LED strip and soder it onto the board, thus still allowing the functionality from front of case?!

  1. Budget?
  2. I dont have 1...Im just going off of the whole: realistic approach.

    If its good and its needed ill grab it, but im not going to be all idiotic (again) and grab a 690 when it'll be replaced pretty soon...

    Mods being added next month:
    -Killer 2100
    -Sound Blaster + Front Panel
    -GTX 675
    -16GB RAM total (4x4)
    -May swap out the PSU for a 850-1200
