Feedback on my first gameing build

The parts are on the way so to late to change anything now, but i would love some feedback on my build (good or dad).

I know the i7 is overkill but i got it for $224.00 new! so i though what the hell.

I know i could have payed less for a CPU cooler that would have worked just as well but aesthetics (red LED) factored into my choice. As it did in my choice of the case.

I do plan to Crossfire the 7970 down the road. That being the case i would like to have gone with a little higher wattage PCU but could not fined one in my price range that i liked. Though at a power requirement of, give or take, 700W with Crossfire, i think 850w should give me enough head room.
