Seems good,
but its the gpu thats not looking good from my point of view.
I would take hd5770 from a better gpu maker like msi/sapphire/asus.
BTW,
I'm also getting a hd5770 for my setup,it will be a sapphire card

Can you post links (so we know the prices of the individual components)?

I recommend replacing the PSU with this.

1. Free shipping was recently cut on the TA870U3+. Which means that getting the 955 + GA-870A-UD3 would cost about the same and be a great combo. Remember to use promo HARDOCPX316A for additional $10 off!
2. Be sure you're getting the Hyper 212+ somewhere other than Newegg (where it's not $38 shipped and a ripoff)
3. Diablotek power supply... very bad idea

if your a gamer..i would suggest you move your gpu up to at least a 5830. you might find yourself disappointed with its performance.

OMG no on that case and PSU.Just get the TT V3 with inc. TR2 psu,if you must cheap-out.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811133185
not the greatest PSU-but I would trust it in a budget build.That Diaboletek I would be afraid to plug it in the wall.

The PSU is complete and utter garbage. Corsair 500 watt would be a good alternative
The case isnt bad but you can do better. NZXT Gamma is a great alternative
Grab at least a 6870/5850 GPU, you won't regret it
