This is my first budget build for gaming. Thoughts? I know the case is cheap and doesn't support usb3.0 but I don't think 3.0 is necessary anyways and it is allowing me to spend more on gpu/cpu

Looks reasonable.
If you live near a microcenter, they will sell you a 3570K for the same $190.

So is there really any difference btwn the 3330 and the 3470? And why the switch from the ripjaws?

Will a xfx 7870 DD fit ok in the fractal design? On The specifications it says clearance is only 8.5" where the gpu is 9.5".

I think so.
That 8.5" is true if you use ALL of the hard drive bays which are removeable.
If you use only the top bay, you can use a card as long as 13"

Yeh your right, they designed this case so you mount the drive vertical which leaves plenty of room for any gpu.
