The build looks pretty good.

A few suggestions:

1. Double the ram. I have 4 gigs in my sig, and I use it all up at least once a day. Transferring a large file from a thumb drive and having 5 tabs open in Firefox will use most of it. And I usually have to close my browser when gaming.

2. Those monitors are pretty decent, but you may want to get 2ms response. I can't see the difference most of the time, but some people can.

3. Make sure that GPU will fit in that case. Most of the time the case manufacturer will let you know if it has clearance for large cards, but the seller "forgets" to put it on the site.

4. Take into account what you might be adding in at a later time before you decide on a PSU. The one you have should be fine for this build, and probably fine for adding another 560 Ti later, but you also need to take into account any lights you may add, extra fans, adding a bigger CPU later. As well as any overclocking you might want to do on the GPU, CPU and RAM.

Also, that PSU HDD combo is a great price with hard drives being so pricey right now. Snatch it up while it's still available. I would also keep an eye on Newegg and TigerDirect for the builders specials. You get everything you need to build a decent rig for a great price. Normally, the cheaper ones will need a new mobo and GPU to make the system worthwhile, but you can always buy better ones and throw the ones that came with the kit on Ebay and make some cash back. Honestly, some of those kits they sell are a steal, and just buying them to part them out and resell the individual parts could net you a profit.

overall looks like a good build on a budget. though ive never used an nzxt case and that corsair builders series power supply looks kind of weak on the 12 volt rail. If i may suggest a look at the cooler master silent pro 700 watt psu, which is modular and has alot more beef on the 12 volt rail. plus an 8gb of ram kit would be better as its easy to use up 4gb of ram once you start transfering files and surfing the web and general multitasking. As neighborhoodgeek mentioned, 4gb of ram doesnt go all that far. I've used almost 4gb of ram before myself when surfing with 5 tabs on ie, listening to music on windows media player 12 and doing a 15GB data backup for myself. the official tally was 3.95gb of ram used to accomplish all that. that would pretty much run you out of ram, and i guarantee your system would flip out.

Mine doesn't flip out when I use it all up, but it slows to a crawl and is pretty much unusable. You really can't go wrong getting a bigger PSU than you actually need. Within reason of course... No use buying a 1500W PSU, but a 700 or 800W would be worth it. I am using a CM PSU, and so far it's rock solid. However, do your research before buying a CM PSU. Some of them are great, others not so much.

just a few points your total is 850 dollars and Id look at the Phoneom x4 960T alot of them will unlock to a 6 core and for the same price your paying for 4 gigs of ram you can get 8 gigs of ram and come in 10 dollars cheeper just remove the cpu/ram combo and add this
