Default Ordering Tonight....advice?

YAY YAYYAYI'm getting so excited because I finally got all my money together and I'm going to order the parts for my new gaming rig tonight from direct canada....

so, besides me acting like a little girl for the next few days I was looking for last minute advice on parts or even small suggestions for minor adjustments. Just really a second opinion.... I will playing mainly FPS games at 1920x1080 so here it is:

CM Storm Scout
Intel i5-750
Hyper 212+ (2x scythe slipstream jyuni 120mm fans giving 110.3 cfm each for push-pull)
ASUS P7P55D motherboard
ripjaws 4gb 9-9-9-24 ddr3-1600mhz
xfx 4890 1gb
WD Caviar Black 640gb
Lg 16x internal dvd ROM Drive
Antec Basiq BP550 Plus 550w psu

Extras:
LG 21.5" LCD monitor (W2243T-PF)
OCZ Behemoth 800-3200 dpi gaming mouse
OCZ Behemoth regulator extra-large gaming mouse pad
100ft snagless CAT5E RJ45 network patch cable
(I already got my keyboard and speakers)

GRAND TOTAL(including taxes and shipping): $1405.16

(I know I'm asking for input but please don't suggest me to ditch the psu cuz I can't afford anything else and it will get the job doneyou rich people leave me alone)

Hopefully someone will have some good stuff to say
thanks in advance for input, good or bad

I'm ordering from direct canada....I know ncix has PM but for everything I wanted it ended up being cheaper to go with no shipping cost at directcanada than PM and pay shipping with ncix....

I geuss its just the way it worked out for me cuz directcanada had some of the lowest prices of the parts I want

I figured as much. That power supply bugs me but I'm sure you'll swap it out for something a bit better first chance you get, right?.....RIGHT?

Ditch the Slipstream fans. They lack any air pressure so performance on a heatsink will be seriously limited.

Grab something like the Gentle Typhoons or the S-FLEX series. Ultra Kaze would suffice too if you can fit 38mm fans.

I would say keep the stock 212+ fans, save yourself $30 or w/e and your hearing. Also try using www.pricecanada.com or www.shopbot.ca

Just to see if lower prices exist.

NCIX saves the day, order from NCIX, do the price match, save more money... And NCIX is offering free ground shipping on entire order for upto 150bs with a i5 750..

Only thing in there I would personally suggest is changing the power supply, Corsair PSUs are very good..
