Looks like a good build. I don't see any red flags.

I think that CPU and crazy case deserves a higher end video card but if that's not in the budget I'd say you're fine.

Dunno what I'd cut out to give you more cash for GPU other than getting a cheaper CPU and a less expensive case.

Thanks for the input, I agree that the case outweighs the other components. Thats something I was considering changing myself. I figured I would go ahead and get this case because it is well equipped for possible future upgrades. I actually wanted to get a better video card as well and I am looking into future upgrades.
