  1. change your PSU to this PC Power and Cooling Silencer Mk II 750W High Performance 80PLUS Silver SLI CrossFire ready Power Supply
  2. i have done hours of research and this SSD beat everything up the $200 range, take my word and my extensive research and this

    i have that same video card and i extremely pleased with it, its dead silent and cool at full load

    i would look into fractal cases, they make a really high quality product for a descent price, the arc midi and define r4 are two extremely good cases

    besides what i said that is an excellent build, i would get the evo edition of the hyper 212 though
  3. Also you need low profile ram so it doesn't conflict with your aftermarket cooler here are a few suggestions RAM:G.SKILL Sniper 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-8GBSR

    RAM:G.SKILL Ares Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-1600C9D-8GAB

    RAM:CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Low Profile Desktop Memory Model CML8GX3M2A1600C9
