There's no difference between the two RAM brands. They're both reliable and have identical products. I personally like Corsair, but G.Skill is just fine.

I have a HAF 912 case and love it. It's a really good quality for the price, has great air flow, and excellent cable management. It's also roomy and very modular - you can pretty much remove all the cages if you want.

As far as the rest of your build goes, I'd add more power. A Corsair TX-650W will be a better choice. Also, the CX series is lower-quality than TX, HX, or AX - if you can spare the money, definitely move up to a higher series.

Oh and ditch the 670 for a 7970 - around the same price and the 7970 outperforms.

Out of the box they trade blows, and the 670 may be a bit better. But you can overclock the 7970 easily to the point that it will be the clearly better card.

The benchmarks here show that they compare pretty well: http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/508?vs=598

But like I said, the 7970 has much more overclock potential. Or you could just buy the Ghz edition of the 7970, which is factory overclocked and wins handily. Here's the review: http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/radeon-hd-7970-ghz-...

Edit: Was writing when you wrote the second post. You can buy a regular 7970 and OC it yourself for similar performance. If you prefer stock cards, then the 670 might be a better bet. I just assumed you were comfortable with OCing since you said you want to do extreme OC with your CPU.

You can do that with a 7870.

Yes, but as said you don't really need this high-end of a card to do that.
