what are you using this build for? If it is for games, then there are a lot of things that need to be changed.

if it a gaming pc drop the i7 for the i53570. most games now dont use hyper threading. you dont need 16g of ram 8g is fine for a gaming rig. unless you use cad or photoshop the extra ram will help you.
change the 550w to a 650w unit. with power supply it not the max wattage you have to look at it the 12v leg and the voltage of the video card and cpu combed. you then want to leave some head room for the drives.
another 50.00 case looking for black on black.

I'm looking more into, video editing, photoshop, 3D modeling, I don't plan on playing too much gaming but plan to do casual gaming, Such as Minecraft, League of Legends, and Black ops 2, but I don't really worry about quality I'm usually fine with normal settings but I plan on using it more for video editing.
