[New Build] Looking for final approval

Hi guys. I am trying to build a gaming PC and have pretty much finalized what I want, but I would like your suggestions on any tweaks/improvements that could be made. This is the part list:

I also plan on picking up this CPU cooler (PC Part Picker didn't have it listed): http://www.amazon.com/ThermalRight-HR-02-MACHO-Thermalright-Macho/dp/B005ERSN7G/ref=cm_cr_pr_product_top


What do you guys think? Would you make any changes?
Is the CPU cooler overkill? I plan on overclocking my CPU at some point, so I want one that can keep it cool while still being as quiet as possible (fan noise bothers me more than it should). I was also looking at this: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/zalman-cpu-cooler-cnps10xperforma

How about the PSU is there anything that is as good but maybe a bit cheaper?

What variant of the GTX 670 is most suggested? Is the EVGA version nice?

Thank you for any suggestions!

  1. Ok, I made a few changes.

    Try this...

    I'd recommend you get the hyper 212 evo. It keeps everything pretty cool and at a fair price. The 212 evo is kinda quiet, but if you want something even quieter, go with this...
    Noctua NH-D14

    or this...
    ZALMAN CNPS12X 120mm

    The PSU you selected is about as good as it gets as far as price...unless you don't mind sacrificing the modular feature and wattage. I'd suggest you just stick with what you originally chose. :)

    Typically, the ASUS or EVGA version of the gtx 670 is most prevalent, however, I'm gonna recommend the gigabyte version for it's 3 fan custom cooling design.

    GIGABYTE GV-N670OC-2GD GeForce GTX 670 2GB

    Hope this helps. If you have any more questions, feel free to ask. :)
