I would've gotten at least 1600MHz memory, but that build will do great!

Are you using the HD4850 as a video card?

Yea, figured id use the 4850 for another year or so. I was debating on getting faster memory, but I read the reviews and the price was right

Well, memory only helps with overclocking headroom, but I don't think you'll run into problems with the i5 670 having such a high multiplier. Remember to post pics and show us your overclock!

I would've gotten either a WD, Seagate, or Samsung hard drive but I guess the Hitatchi ones are good also
I wouldn't have gotten the H50, the noctua nh-d14 is an air cooler that is cheaper (after you buy fans for H50) and performs better or you could've waited for the H70 to come out
Edit: also if your going to upgrade your graphic card later I suggest going sli because that graphics card will be a lot cheaper
Edit: the RAM I have is 1600mhz and it is on sale right now on newegg for $85 the usual price was $90...so you could've save money there with a faster RAM

Honestly, you won't notice a difference between 1333 vs 1600MHz memory.

It's looking great!

Do you plan on overclocking it?

Could not find my camera had to use my phone.
