I've been doing a lot of research and plan on getting all of the parts in that list. Im just wondering if you guys think i could get anything better for the money. I'm planning on heavy gaming. Let me know what you guys think!

do you really need the 35 dollar case fan ?

Save some money on ram
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231311

i can see what you were trying to do with the color scheme though....

In honest opinion though save some money for the parts instead of looks.....
If resale then yes aesthetics are important but if not ....Then get Performance for cheaper and enjoy the extra saved cash on a bigger vid card

Edit:
Oh and as compuman has stated Get rid of SSD
Seriously go with two drives for the price of one....
A 1TB samsung f3 drive
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822152185

and another mechanical drive....for the main os....
ssd are great if you just like to boot fast and say ya my programs open in a flash....
instead get a drive that will be one of the fastest HDD on the market
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822136322

ALSO YOU NEED A CPU COOLER....youll really want to get a descent one....look at the corsair h80s or h100 they are really nice...planning on getting one here shortly once i get paid along with new vid cards and couple more hard drives....(6990s here i come)

I'd get rid of the SSD to go with an additional GTX560ti, or at least go with the 64gb drive.

There is no aftermarket cooling, have a look at the CM hyper 212+

No storage drive, you will want a mechanical drive for backing up on to and storing music, films etc. Get a 1tb samsung F3 or a WD 1tb blue, something like that

Go with this memory, http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231445, you don't need the memory you selected for gaming.

Also go with the TX650V2 It's a considerable saving and will help you cover the cost of the extra GPU and the mechanical drive.

I failed to mention that i have a 320gb hdd already that i plan on using with the SSD. Also i failed to mention the cpu cooler im getting which is the cooler master n520.

The case fans im buying are for color, and my friend is buying the red ones that the case comes with.

Also i do plan on running SLI in the near future. probably a month or so down the road. Would the 650w PSU be able to cover all that?

Thanks for all the input guys. i really appreciate it.

As long as it's not SLi GTX580's or 6990's then yes 650w is ample.

I wouldn't use a 360gb drive in that machine, it just won't be enough, 1TB minimum imo.

I would still go with the CM212+

You can also SLi this month if you get a mech drive instead of the SSD and get the extra GPU this month when you get the build

I would suggest a minimum of 750-800 watts

There is no need for a 750w - 800w PSU.

I ran my sig rig with Sli GTX570's on my old HX650.

The build doesn't look bad.One thing I would do is pick you out a good full tower.I won't build a mid tower for my main rig again ,just not enough room.I know its not saving you money but the last few rigs have been much more pleasant with a full tower.Maybe an Antec 1200 or a HAF 932.

I know ill be keeping the case i have on there. My friend has the same case and loves it. I really like it as well.

i suppose i can always buy an SSD later a long with another 560. i could probably afford another 560 right now without the SSD but i have to wait for my next paycheck to see (this friday).
