Final iteration of my build, featuring a white 500r :)

I'm pumped for this build! I went $100 over my budget, but it's a very strong and solid build IMO so it's worth it.

Any comments or suggestions before I order everything tonight?

*edit* note I'm not planning on doing SLI for a long time, so I just decided to go with a 600w. I know I will have to replace it eventually, but that's the decision I made.

Also, was going to go with a HAF 922, but all of a sudden I started reading into a 500R and it looks fantastic.

If you don't plan to sli for a while like you said, then yeah I'd stick with the 600w. By time you do decide you need more gpu power you may just decide to go with a newer model gpu.
And that 500R does look like a sexy case.

My thoughts exactly. By the time I would think of SLI, the 570 would be cheap. Not to mention PSUs would be cheaper too. So a single 570 should run everything fantastic for atleast awhile longer, and if I need to get a 2nd and SLI or just outright buy a better card in a year, so be it. But right now, this is basically the best build I could get for this price.

Tbh, are you in a huge hurry to get a HDD? I am pretty sure you can get a 64Gb SSD for the same price, which really is worth it. Then you can get a used HDD.
