Look like a good build? See anything I have overlooked? Looking to use it for gaming and programming, some light photoshop and video editing.

The Rosewill Green Series 630W is a better PSU.

The Samsung Spinpoint F3 is a much faster HDD than that.

I'd buy the UD3P with that kind of price

Do you really need 8GBs of RAM? And I don't know about that RAM Kit, and I'm not much of a RAM guy, but I think 9-9-9-24 is kinda generic, although it is 1.5v so that's kinda good

Oh yeah... You should buy a heatsink so you could do some overclocking.
The Hyper 212+ should suffice if you only overclock mildly

Attached is my modded build. I switched to the HDD and PSU you suggested, however I kept the same motherboard because it supports crossfire better. As far as the heatsink, I am going to hold off and run it stock for now, but shortly down the road I will be getting a cooling fan, second GPU, and a SSD.

Thanks for your help tryagainplss, unless anyone else has some input, I think I will order tomorrow.
