Here is my build, i play games such as WoW, Guild wars 2, might try BF3 or skyrim someday. please let me know what you think, im a little iffy on the video card, power supply and if everything should fit in that case nicely.

also for the price its not 895.00 there is an instore discount for the MB and CPU so its really 855 and i could cut down cost with a different case but the haf 912 but it wont fit right with my MB.

Never get a cooler master PSU. Get a 500w-600w unit from Antec, XFX, Corsair, or Seasonic.

Other than that, it looks good to me.

Silent Pro Series is supposed to be one of the better ones but.....

Yeah, I would get what tiny voices said.

Switch the case. 922 is pretty old and obsolete.

Yeah, it's just that even though it's pretty good. CM has been known for its terrible work on PSU.
