Thats actually a fantastic build. I couldnt have put it together better myself! Basically any suggestions would just be opinion based, because all of these parts go perfectly together.

Just my suggestions, since you have a rocking system with room to upgrade, I would go for a full tower case just in case you want to add another 680 in the future. Also, 16GB of ram is completely unecessary for any gaming computer, so you could drop down to 8GB without a performance hit and you would save some money, but really it doesnt matter. I have 16GB merely for bragging rights lol.

Other than that, everything is great. The Corsair HX is a fantastic power supply, the i5-3570K is a fantastic CPU (which i would HIGHLY HIGHLY suggest you get an aftermarket CPU cooler for), the mobo is great, the HDD is ok, the SSD is great, the RAM is great, the GPU is fantastic, the optical drive is great, and the monitor will be outstanding.

Good luck with ypur build and enjoy!

hello your build is great :-)

however as the last poster said I'd like to see a larger case to show off that build and adds room for future expansion.

Thermaltake Armor cases are interesting. They're tough as nails but the construction can be a bit rough and some of the design choices can be hard to work with. You may want to consider getting a Corsair mid tower instead
