That looks really good. You don't need the extra fans until you get your case - hold off on those for now.

Read this about setting up air flow: http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/cooling-airflow-hea...

You don't need the second SSD and if you're putting them in RAID mode be aware that both drives need to be exactly the same and that they're more likely to fail than if you leave them running independent of each other.

Unless you're setting up a RAM disk or doing some really heavy duty video editing you don't need 32GB of RAM and that RAM needs to be low profile if you're running a D14. Get this instead: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1682...

That power supply is fine.

hey there
32 gigs or ram is absolute overkill. you wont notice performance improvements over 8 gigs
as for windows pick up windows 7 or 8 oem home premium...its $100 and pro as you picked is $150 so you save some money there
very nice cpu heatsink....with the money saved from the ram and windows get a better graphics card

But the OP plans to do some video editing on this rig in addition to gaming so more than 8GB will be needed as will 7 Pro. So that is justified.

Plus you can always turn some of the 32GB into a RAM drive to hold the page file.

that ram you linked will void your CPU warranty. it only has a 1600mhz bus and, while it can go higher, Intel doesn't like that. go down to 1600 as you will not see any differences at all and you keep your warranty.

Or you could set up a RAM disk which isn't that difficult to do. But I think paying $200 for RAM is quite a bit overkill if you ask me. You could always start with 16GB and add more as your needs increase.
