Looks good but you should go with a 640gb wd black hard drive over the green, their faster =) the greens are built for low power not high speeds. Also check out the OCZ 1600mhz CL 7 platinum kits, their fast, and only $100.

The rest looks good, although I personally wouldnt go with a cosmos S case, their old, heavy, dont cool that well, and EXPENSIVE. There are much better cases out right now, like the haf, the silverstone fortress, the storm sniper, the storm scout, and soon the Haf 922. Also the TRUE is a better cooler then the noctua for around the same price ;)

Thats really just my 2 cents, you kind of missed out on that classified + dominator + CPU bundle that was on for a great price.

Newegg has the best price for the ATCS840 I believe atm thats what im going for with my new build. 220 vs 300 at ncix great cooling and great looking case. just really big.
