Your parts list is great, but I have a comment. Your PSU is 520W, which is meant for a single card setup, yet you have a motherboard that can CF/SLI. I recommend saving ~$60 or so and getting a Z77 Pro3 Gen3.

I made two final changes:
1. Psu: Enermax NAXN 750w 82+ Modular.
2. Hdd: seagate barracuda 2T ST2000DM001
What do you think??

Good PSU. Enermax is one of the best in the business. That Hard Drive is good too. You're all set.

*Noctua fans are UGLY AS HELL, replace the noctua NH-D14 with a Zalman CNPS12X, they perform exactly the same.

or

*Are you sure you want a green drive? evem for storage only that thing is kinda slow, replace it with a barracuda 2TB drive.

*Crucial M4 might me a good SSD but there better options like the Vertex 4, Samsung 830, Mushkin Chronos Deluxe or Plextor M3 would be better choices.




*For about the same price of the Fractal design R4 white you can buy a NZXT Phantom 410

*That PSU is 80$ and it will only power 1 GTX 670, for 70$ you can buy this: http://www.microcenter.com/single_product_results.phtml... it will easily power 2 overclocked GTX 670s and your overclocked CPU, its PC Power & Cooling so there are no doubts about its high quality.

*As i already said...noctua fans are ugly and there are better suggestion (if you go with the phantom 410) depending on the color of case you choose, if you pick the white or black (or a combination of both) then you should buy two unitrs of this fans: http://www.frozencpu.com/products/2501/fan-200/AeroCool... and place one on the top and the other in the side.

Aqua is now right about Green Drives. With the drop in HD prices, most of the time, Green Drives are no cheaper than their 7200rpm counterparts.

1. I changed the psu for the ones that didn't see to Enermax NAXN 750W 82+ Modular
2. I didn't see one review that said that the zalman is better then the noctua, and the noctua is more quiet so he stays.
3. For the ssd i did a small research and i think about the vertex 3 240gb. It's rank 3 in the preformance chart. What do you say??
4. I will stay with the fractal design r4 it is quiet and beauteful case.

1) Good choice, altough i've never heard anything about Enermax.

2) do you think that a 1degree diference is worth buying an ugly ass Heat skin??

3)i dont know where the hell did you read that but thats totally wrong. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OkD3yQODMSw

4)it might be "beutifull" but it gets outperformed by the Corsair 300R and you can see here how the Phantom 410 outperforms the 300R ----> http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/mana-136-midgard-ii...

1. This is a Enermax review http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/1275
2. I will stay with the noctua because it is quiet and better preformance although it's ugly because i will stay too with the fractal case, it is a close case unlike the 410 that have a window so i won't see the cooler.
The fractal is more quiet so it is my choice although the higher temp in load (i put 3 noctua nf-p14 fans).
3.Ok so vertex3 is no more an option so vertex4 or crucial m4, (Mushkin Enhanced Chronos Deluxe,Samsung 830 and Plextor m3 are not available for my now). There is one more option of 2 samsung 830 128gb in raid0.
Thanks for all the help and the knowledge.
