But nice build nevertheless, im a big fan of cooler master HSF
Im not a big fan of DDR3 memory. When the RAM is one of the most expensive component of the entire system, you may want to rethink it
SSD are OK, superfast, dont have to wait for the spinning/hour glass, but the life degrades with usage. Its a toss up.
Heat shouldnt be an issue, you have some top notch tech in there including nice sound card/SSD/DDR3. Its pricey but thats all relative.
Edit: Mewegh says the lanbox case is unavailable...

And from what I've read a 955 is a little bit better price/perf wise, as they both get about the same clocks when oc'd. Could save a little money goin with 4gb and a 955.
Best part is all of this will be cheaper in 4-6 months anyhow
