First Build System, Let me know of the specs!

Hi guys! I have always just read the forums and and have been doing some research the last few months on a new computer build. If you have any suggestions on anything please let me know! This is my first build and it will be used mostly for gaming, web surfing and maybe some music production. I think this build will decent enough. Oh, and I will be going to SLI down the road.

More about first build system specs
  1. Forgot to add that I already ordered a Blu-ray drive and another DVD Drive for it
  2. Did you check a review site for the PSU?

    CPU cooler?
  3. A lot of people on NewEgg had good things to say about the PSU minus that the controller is pointless. Which I probably wont even use. I just like the quick connect features of it.

    With the CPU cooler, I am debating on what kind of system to use. I am looking into a water system, but an kinda scard to embark on that as I have never done one...
