also, I will be running Windows 7. Please point any unbalances or incompatibilities if I missed them. Also if there are any comparable components that you know I can acquire at lower price points help a fellow nerd out!

That's pretty much as good as you'll get, pretty much the same as mine. There is nothing on that list I would change besides maybe the case, but that is all preference[I would rather get the HAF 922].

It's fully compatible and the only way you can lower the price is to buy your 920 at a local microcenter if you have one.

edit: Oh yeah, pick up a CPU cooler if you don't have one. I recommend the dark knight for about $45 bucks or the Corsair h50 for about $80, both are great. The corsair I have is a VERY easy install. If you're not going to overclock/buy a aftermarket cooler, just pick up the 930 instead.

I'd go for a CoolerMaster case. They seemed to be of a better build quality when I was looking past week.

The 690 would be my choice.

Nice looking build though.

Enjoy

I would highly recommend going to a Microcenter, or get someone to buy you one from them there.

It would be a lot cheaper either way.

Unless you need to go Intel.. you could save a bit o' cash goin AMD, NewEgg has a PhII x4 925+ Gigabyte 790GX board combo for ~$265.
