I would highly recommend not using HDMI if DVI or DisplayPort is an option. HDMI can have some weird scaling issues.

Edit: also not a fan of that fan controller

Build looks good though.

I don't have speakers, but have a 23" 1080p monitor with speakers built in. Does DisplayPort/DVI have audio? If not, I will have to risk it...

Ah, go for the DVI then. Although you really should consider separate speakers, The quality will be significantly and noticeably better.

If your playing at 1080p on one monitor you most likely do not need a 2gb video card. IF you plan to do multiple monitors for gaming in the future it is a good choice though.

Intel just announced the 960 to drop in price to $299. I'd swap it for the 950.
Newegg is listing it for $319

This is what I'm talking about! I don't know if the 200mhz will make much of an overclock headroom difference, but I LOVE doing research. If anyone can point me in the right direction, please do?

All other suggestions are greatly valued and appreciated. (Bavarianblessed Repped!)
