Other Thoughts:
1. I will add more ram and that same graphics card over time. I know gpu's must match.
2. Power Supply will be upgraded as needed.
3. I don't need a lot of hdd/ssd space.
4. I really really really want 3d in games and movies
5. I will get a blue ray disc player later.
6. Hoping someone will make sure that all these parts will work together.
7. I would like to add aditional 3d monitors to this setup as time goes on.

Thank you for reading, please let me know what you think!

Change the motherboard to a cheaper Sniper. Infact,you don't need more than the UD5H.
Way too much power supply. Get 750W gold certified from seasonic/fsp/xfx
get 240/256 gb for a tiny bit more. You don't have to fit your space exactly.
Get a 24x burner for same price.
At that price I'd get ips and ignore 3D but to each his own.

The UD5H is another Gigabyte mobo; less expensive than the one you selected. IPS is a better display technology than TFT.

For my part, I'd remove the Crappermaster products and substitute alternates. It isn't that they're bad, but the company has been proven in competent technical reviews to be dishonest, so I cannot support them.

Edit: Oh yeah, and Cougar is not in the same league as the brands allan... mentioned. Antec and Corsair are also solid choices.

^Well,I don't care much about integrity as about how good a product is,so for your peace of mind
The antec 902 and NZXT Switch 810 fall in that budget.
The Xigmatec Dark Knight Night Hawk cooler is better,but also costs abit more. You would need low profile (LP) ram with it though. GSkill Ares are great.

I think you mean TN. TFT is the panel technology.

Too many people not caring about integrity is what has allowed rampant dishonesty to flourish, and hypocrites and parasites to dominate throughout the American political system. If the process of setting things right means calling out a small fish in a big pond (i.e. Crappermaster), then so be it.
