a few things.

 

1) unless if you plan on going sli you ca lower the psu to 600-650w

 

2) do you have a storage drive? only a 120gb ssd wont last very long at all

 

3) imo, i rather go with windows 7 instead of 8

 

4) if possible use a 240mm aio instead of the 120mm h80i, you will get better performance

 

5) I hear those speakers are really bad...

1) I will be in the near future

2) ...it is listed in the rig perhaps you over looked it (1TB)

3) I prefer 8 however i do have 7 as well

4) i'll give you that one.

5) for general use 5.1's they work great.
