Thoughts on this $1800 Gaming Rig?

Hello all:
Below is an outline of a build I am considering going ahead with in a few weeks. However I am still in need of a case. I have been leaning towards the Corsair 600T because I wish to have a mid sized tower with a large interior to fit everything nicely, however the 600T is quite aesthetically boring..


CPU: Intel Core i7-4770K 3.5GHz Quad-Core Processor

CPU Cooler: Noctua NH-D14 65.0 CFM CPU Cooler

Motherboard: MSI Z87 MPOWER ATX LGA1150 Motherboard

Memory: G.Skill Ares Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR3-2133 Memory

Storage: Sandisk Extreme II 240GB 2.5" Solid State Drive
Seagate Barracuda 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive

GPU: EVGA GeForce GTX 780 3GB Video Card

Power Supply: Corsair 860W 80+ Platinum Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply


What do you all think???? I am open to any and all suggestions

  1. Thanks I'll take a look at thier cases! I wasn't aware of the ram being overclocked. will that be incompatible with what i have selected? I'm still new to building so I'm learning.
  2. I'm not an expert on the subject, but I think that overclocked RAM is faster, but at the expense of a shorter life. This RAM is designed for this though, so I hope it would at least be able to handle its own factory overclock.

    You really don't need overclocked RAM, though. 1600MHz is perfectly fine, and in real life use, you probably won't even notice a difference.

    Personally, I always do, and always will, buy Crucial RAM.
