Default Need some feedback on a new build!

Hey Guys,

I'm planning on building a new PC primarily for myself. I"ll mostly be doing gaming and watching HD Video. Nothing else too crazy. Some of the items I have already purchased below so I was just hoping to get some feedback on what you think of this build. Anything you think would be better, or some other idea's for me

Currently this is what I have already:
-Asus Maximus Formula iii
-Intel core i5 750
-4x1gig Crucial DDR3
-Sapphire HD 5870 2GB Toxic Edition
-3x dell 2209WA (no eyefinity yet, need to get a bizlink adapter one day)
- SSD & HD Not too concerned with this right now, I have a WD 640 black and a 60gig OCZ Agility I could put in this PC

Things I still need to pick up:

Case: I really like the TJ07 but i find it is a little too expensive and I haven't seen any FS so currently the only case I can find which i really like is the FT02 which has similar looks. Also i really like that this case is supposed to be quiet and have great airflow. Really want to pick this up as NCIX has 5.99 shipping right now for the next day or so.

Power Supply: Not too sure about this. In my PC i have now i have a corsair hx620 which has worked great so i could just get another one. I know if i get the FT02 i would definitely be looking for something modular. Any idea's on this? Also wouldn't hurt if it stuck to an all black or red/black theme and was quiet.

Prolimatech Mega Shadow - i know i am paying a lot for the finish but i think it would just look great with the rest of the parts. I would be using a Gentle Typhoon 1850 on this.

My System Specs


I think the FT02 is one of the sexiest cases around, and I plan on using it for my next build (whenever that may be, I am not certain)

What do you guys think of this PSU?

NCIX.com - Buy Enermax EMD625AWT MODU82+ 625W ATX12V V2.3 24PIN Power Supply - EMD625AWT In Canada.

Newegg.ca - SeaSonic X650 Gold 650W ATX12V V2.3/EPS 12V V2.91 SLI Ready 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply
Actually for 20 dollars more i think this is a better PSU, it is supposed to be SUPER quiet, i think thats what i'll go with.
