looks good, just some minor tweaks.

not sure about the bitfenix raider case, but I guess that's personal preference, I personally have a corsair 500r.

the 850w PSU is a bit overkill. Are you planning to sli another gtx670 in the future, get a 600w-700w max if not sli.

I would personally add a samsung 830 SSD to install the OS on, it is BLAZING fast, boots in 10sec from windows logo "starting windows" screen.

i think the raider is pretty good, its cheap, it has 3 fans and a fan controller and i think it looks pretty cool. i put in the hx850 just in case i sli. i would love an ssd but i wouldnt fit in my budget if i also had a hardrive and i cant live with only 120 gbs of storage, ill probly add one later for a boot drive

its a great gaming pc. I personally have core i5 3570K W/ Hydro H60 and GTX 680 and it kills all the current games out there. The GTX 670 performs almost as well as the 680.

if you add one later, you might have a problem with cloning your OS from your hdd to the ssd, the recommended procedure is to do a clean install of OS/drivers on the ssd.

If you get a ssd, which is around $100 for 120g, your total is around $1450. But as you said, you need to buy games...so I guess one way to do this is to downgrade the gtx 670
to the MSI gtx 660 ti OC Power Edition, which saves you $100, and you can use that to buy the ssd. You can also choose the HD 7950, but if you play games like BF3 that favor Nvidia, then an the 660 ti will outperform the 7950 a bit.

If you absolutely love the gtx670, then I'd say wait.

Cheers.

I'd go SSD 128GB OS+games you want on it. 1-3TB storage for any other games/apps that don't need the speed, worth the money. Its like night and day from what i hear, will find out for myself in a day or two =D btw nice build.

Hmm...what type of games don't depend on the ssd's speed?
