looking for input/comments in computer build

i am building my first gaming rig and figured after i picked out all my parts i would post on here and ask the forum what your opinions are and if you had any suggestions/ see any problems in my build so far. i am getting close to ordering it and am just looking for a second opinion.

here is my build so far http://pcpartpicker.com/p/3CMht

i was going to go the custom water cooled loop route for cooling, but i feel as though at this point i am going to focus my budget on the computer and upgrade cooling later on if need be. so i just went with the corsair h100i(also considering getting the noctua NH-D14 still unsure)

any comments are greatly appreciated

  1. Use this
    http://www.realhardtechx.com/index_archivos/Page362.htm
    to size your power supply

    Use RAM rated for 1.5 volts or LESS

    The velociraptor is much slower than an SSD and a waste of money .
    Samsung 840 , probably best choice
  2. if this is gaming then the i7 isn't needed, i5 will do everything you wish.

    you really think you need the features of a $300 mobo?

    Gaming wise there is no difference among RAM so spending more on frequency isn't always worth it.

    Personally I find the 780ti not worth the price.

    Overkill PSU unless you want to SLI.
  3. Everything there is needlessly overprices. a 500 gb hard drive, seriously
