Updated build (+ Orange UV Tubes)

Ok, any comments on this build? I'm not planning on overclocking. this build pretty much has everything i want and need. but ill open my potential build to your speculations.

And i know I'm going to catch flak for this but I'm also planning on making my rig to look like a beast. Ok so bare with me now. Since i don't need Water Cooling I'm thinking about getting clear tubing and filling it with orange UV liquid and fake the appearance of liquid cooling (Purely aesthetic). Along with blue led light fans (or orange UV fans idk yet) and maybe 1-2 UV cathodes i can make this rig look much more impressive to the untrained eye. (most of my friends don;t know a thing about computers, the ones that do don't come over) so it will give the impression of it being L33t to my normal friends. any other cool suggestions for customization?

More about updated build orange tubes
  1. there is no point of asthetics when you couldnt even max out the performance in the rig

    get this


    hard drive

    some red leds (orange is 2 bucks more). there are shorter lengths avaliable. i would rather put my money towards an even more powerful video card (a 7950)
  2. all of the aesthetics will come after I'm done with my build. and thanks :).

    I notice you guys here like Hd 7870 over the GTX 660.

    any benchmarks?
  3. Bump, Any other suggestions?
