Get 8gb ram and a 7970.

You don't need the extra fans until after the build is completed. And yes get 8GB of RAM. Otherwise that looks good to me.

Looks good to me.I would get 8GB of ram and a 670 instead and a better motherboard but to each his/her own it's all compatible as is so your good to go.

Don't forget that you'll need to buy a copy of windows. As said you don't really need the extra fans and get the 7970. It is much cheaper than the 680 and performs about the same. You should be able to save enough from that to upgrade the SSD.

And one of these SSD.
