If you see a part that should be upgraded or doesn't fit please tell me a good alternative or a close competitor. Suggestions will be appreciated. the only thing i am not sure about is the power will be for gaming and video is at the top of my budget so any way if u could think of another part to bring down the cost.And will ever thing fit into the case.

I wouldnt change anything. Its a great build :)  although if you really need to lower it, the i5 2500K is a great substitute with the 7870.

id get a p8z77-LK from asus instead of the pro3. the asus board supports SLI for the future and has better power delivery.

if you plan on SLI in the future, get a XFX pro 750w psu. if you do not, get a xfx 550w. the modxstream is known to be loud and it isnt very efficent anymore

id suggest not going with the anti-static wriststrap as you can discharge static electricty by touching the side of the case before and every so often while handling the equipment.

sometimes anti-static wristraps dont even work. test with a multi-meter first

single card, go either seasonic m12II 520w (59.,99 on or a xfx 550w power supply if you plan on running one video card. you will need 750w if you plan to upgrade to 2 video cards in the future
