Colours are already balanced.

Could probably check the ASUS GTX 980 20th Anniversary Gold Edition

Dude, Kudos it looks great. The first thinks that popped to mind to me to paint was the covers as you suggested and the HDD mounts in the bottom with the thumb screws. Im thinking of spraying those white in mine myself.

I also agree on the gold and black asus 980. I think doing to much more after that would be gold overkill but looks ace as it is now.

Or you could buy a decent all black one and shell out £30 for a gold back plate or spray the one that comes with if it haves one but it will void te warranty on most I think.

Could hook up a G10 to it, sprayed and maybe if the card has a midplate/backplate sprayed as well. EVGA all gold and AIO would stand out a treat !

My budget is between $400-$500.. Actually thinking about the Asus Strix version and then maybe paint the backplate.

Motherboard: Intel S2600CP4 C602 Server Motherboard SSI-EEB Form-Factor
RAM: 8x 8GB Samsung DDR3-1333 Registered ECC, 64GB total.
GPU: EVGA GeForce GTX 670 FTW
Sound: ASUS Xonar DX
Other: NEC Renesis PCI-E to USB 3.0 Card
PSU: EVGA SuperNova 750 G2
SSD: Intel 520 120GB
HDD: Seagate ST2000DM001
Case: NZXT S340 White
Case Fan: 2x Noctua P14s Redux 1200-PWM, 1x Scythe Slipstream PWM

I have modded the case to accommodate SSI-EEB sized motherboard by removing the cable management bar, then drill additional motherboard stand holes according to SSI-EEB standard, then fabricated a steel support plate on the back of the case using an old case parts. Out of the box the motherboard hole only lines up in 3 of 9 places. Now after drilling holes and adding a support plate, all 9 wholes are lined up perfectly.

The GPU and SSD/HDD are taken from my previous PC, so I will look to upgrade them relatively soon, but for occasional gaming the 670 FTW will do for me. The Scythe Slipstream is also a scrap part which is now the noisiest part in the PC, I did some research to found out that the intended fan to buy of NF-S12a is not very suitable for the exhaust position for this case because the exhaust mesh is pretty dense, so I will look to replace it with a SP optimized fan such as NF-P12 or another NF-F12.

Overall I am pretty happy about this new computer, for programming, photo and video post processing, it gets the job done many times faster than my old PC.

Upgrading from a 4-core i5 to this still doesn't fail to impress me. In today's server world it is nothing, but compared with desktop PC's it still packs some serious punches. With the ability to upgrade to 128GB RAM and 2 additional PCI-E 3.0 8x slots and 10 SATA ports, it will serve me well for some years. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Holy moley! Great work man, this is beautiful.
