I wouldn't grab a caviar black as they are generally slower than the 7200.14 and the wd blues

Make sure you put the ram in before the cooler as its harder to fit the ram after cooler is installed

You can drop down to a 550-650w PSU if you don't plan to CFX/SLI

This will be my 4th gaming PC build. I thought the 7200 RPM caviar black's were the fastest WD hard drives from WD ? I am getting the cx 750 because I will be overclock the CPU and the GPU and also, its part of the COMBO deal that I am getting

No they're not. All 7200 RPM drives pretty much perform at the same level, and I've never seen anything that would tell me otherwise.

Personally I'd go for the Gigabyte Windforce 670 over the MSI TwinFROZR, but otherwise the original build looks good. You don't really need an SSD to start with - you can always add one in later.
