Bump, What I meant was Green lighted I just worded it wrong lol, wanted to know if this is a good build ect

But Now that I see them they look cool, maybe I need to invest in some.

lol at green lights.

The build looks fine to me. I would personally swap the Seagate HDD for a Samsung Spinpoint F3. Never heard of GeiL, so not sure how good that ram is; doesn't mean it's bad, just unfamiliar.

Looks great to me.

If you can, consider Using a SSD of 120gb instead of the 1tb hard drive.
The cost will be similar.
120gb is sufficient for the os and a handful of games.
Later, if you need more room for storage, add a hard drive when the current high prices have returned to normal.
In the mean time, a SSD will make everything you do feel so much quicker.
