Just need to know if this is a good build/overkill and if I left anything out that I need and if there is anything that I don't need.

Lol, I am a complete noob when it comes to these things.

I recommend get the good and less expensive PSU from CORSAIR(< $80):
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Productcompare.aspx?Submi...|17-139-028^17-139-028-TS%2C17-139-031^17-139-031-TS

And use the money you save to buy the good SSD like Crucial M4 128GB, SAMSUNG 830 128BG, and intel etc.

The agility 3 is not the real SATAIII SSD, you can find the review from internet.

All other parts are very good.

What will this system be used for? If you are intending to use this primarily for gaming, I feel you are investing in the wrong areas.

For example, for gaming, you only need an i5. Anything more than that is a waste of money, which you could invest on something like a better GPU.

They're just personal preferences of mine.

I dislike the styling of the Tuniq Tower, and I would much prefer to get something a little cheaper like the Hyper 212. If I were to step up my cooling, I would much prefer to spend the extra $$ into a NH-D14 or Silver Arrow :lol: 

@ OP

Any of the SSD's aqualipt or I have listed will be fine for you, I would just say which has the cheapest price at the time of purchase. Though keep in mind the Samsung or Vertex will have better write speeds, generally the same read speeds.

Also about the GPU's, again, just a personal preference of mine. My case is optimized more for silence, so I don't want to take off the side mesh off to add extra fans --- so I prefer reference blower style coolers instead of internal exhaust to yield best temperatures. Again, any of the GPU's aqualipt or I have listed will be fine :)

Yes, I think we are! LOL

http://www.thermalright.com/new_a_page/product_page/cpu... I prefer this color on the Silver Arrow, however.

The LED's are nice I admit, but the first cooler isn't for me :lol:  I don't like how the heatsink looks. The second one is decent however :) 


Both of those cooler will be better if the Fan holders weren't beige
