yeah a storage drive for sure plus i would look at a 7870 tahiti LE card such as this
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814131484&Tpk=hd7870%20tahiti&IsVirtualParent=1
The GPU is a light version of the 7950/70 Tahiti Chip.

This is what I came up. There's a lot of places you could've saved money (mostly mobo, DVD drive, RAM, and PSU). I upgraded your SSD to 120GB and gave you a 1TB storage drive too. PCPartPicker didn't have your case on there, so I just put in another. IMO cases are 90% personal opinion, so go ahead and get the Thermaltake case. You'll still have room to upgrade anything you want since this is under your $1200 budget thumb.gif

Downgrade to FX-8320, and use that saved money for 2 7870.

16GB RAM is a little overkill. You should get a faster 8GB like this http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B006E067UM/ref=ox_sc_act_title_10?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER

This is in the AMD section, so I would guess the OP wants to go with all AMD cpu + gpu; just an assumption though.
