That looks like a really solid build - the only things I would switch are the SSD and the power supply. If you post the store you're buying from that will help to suggest parts. If you don't know one check the link in my signature.

You may want to re think the GHz edition 7970. Apparently you can overclock regular 7970's to about the same speed saving $50.

So maybe get a quality 7970 and overclock it.

---The Radeon HD 7970's value proposition at $400 is substantial. We also don't think that paying an extra $70 or more for a GeForce GTX 680 makes much sense when its performance is similar.

You might be able to find a Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition card selling in the $400 range, and if you do, it might make a good buy. But for the $450 most GHz Edition cards are currently selling for, we'd skip them. As they stand, the Radeon HD 7970s are already pretty overclockable, meaning you can coax much of that performance from a cheaper card anyway.---

Sure, any suggestions on the "quality" 7970, @ Jimms

Ask two people, get three answers. I sort of like Gigabyte with their signature three fan cooling solution. It keeps the chip cool so it will be more reliable and can be overclocked more and will run with less noise.

OP is in Finland - Newegg won't ship there. You need to link to the site that the OP will be buying from.
