Other than the cooler, its a very nice build. The cooler is very good for its price, but with such a system, spending 50 dollars for a high-end cooler is much better in my opinion. A 2500k would love something like a Mugen 2 rev B.

Edit: Perhaps you could go with the Flex version of the Sapphire 6950. And welcome to OCN!

I still run a AGP build with 5900xt any one remember that card? cant blame you for the upgrade tho. CM 212+ is well love and seems to compete with much high end coolers that cost twice the amount.

I don't think the 800D gets very good airflow, but I could be thinking of something else.
Separate drives for your OS and other stuff would be cool, as well.
What resolution is your current monitor?
I think you would be better off spending money on a better cooler. That one is nice, but you can still get a better one.

They have h50's for $40 at bestbuy if you have one of them nearby. For that price it beats any air cooler priced the same.

Thank you. Would a corsair h50 or h60 suffice or maybe the antec kuhler 920 $100+?
