For $950 you can do way better. Except for the case, pretty much everything you have on that system is two - three generations old now and has been replaced by far more current hardware. The extra thermal compound isn't needed and there's far newer and better GPUs than the 480. Xigmatek coolers are horrendously overrated, and the extra fans will be useless until you get your build up and running.

Try something like this:

Hey Gunit, do you have another video card you recommend? that one seems to have a lot of problems, unless you know how to solve the problem of it notoriously shutting down and freezing.

:/  Did you not even check out my build.

The 7870 is fine BTW, I wouldn't trust Newegg reviews too much, most of the major website reviewers like G3D and Toms Hardware haven't seen issues from drivers by AMD mainly because they've clean installed them correctly.
