I'd get a better mobo from Asus, a Corsair TX 650 v2, a HAF XM and a 2TB 7200RPM drive and you are set. Consider a 7950 if you are planning on gaming heavily too.

Local Stores here change their stock very very often, So It's either a Thermaltake Smart or the Corsair/Seasonic PSU line. 1.5V, Case CM690II/Anything i find that i like. Purpose of build: AIO, All in one, Gaming, Light Coding, Running a few VM's so added the 16 ram.

Better Mobo From Asus? I'll look to see which has better offerings, I'm sticking to a modular power supply, HAF XM, Too aggressive and big, 7950, No need as its 3GB RAM and i only use one monitor, and the 7870 is already plenty enough for me.

Big is always better, the XM will last for at least three more builds and the higher RAM on the 7950 and bandwith is very useful for texture mods and pumping up AA/AF in games. As for modular, I'd prefer a fully cabled PSU, its easier to work with and the cables can easily be stashed all around the XM.

I dont see how the HAF is any greater/future proof than a CM 690 or Corsair 550D. The AX650 Looks like an amazing psu + neat.
