Everything is fine and perfect IMO. Keep it like thatt, build and enjoy! Maybe post some pic of the assembly in the work blog section?

LOL this is not medium budget.. medium budget would be a 800-900$ gaming machine.. this is more a Entousiams machine as you bought the fastest single gpu card from ATI and a really good CPU/MB

I was thinking the same thing! i want to see you go all out on a build! you'll get a gold plated case or something! lol.. ya your build looks great you shouldn't have any problems running anything, especially if you grab another card later and crossfire it..
