I'd give it a 6.5 maybe 7.

What about getting a modular power supply?

You could get version 2.0 of the TX750 for the same price. -1
Your Vengeance RAM kit will not fit on your motherboard with the NHD14. Go for low profile heat sink RAM kit. I recommend Kingston. -2
I know that the HAF 932 has an updated version with USB. 3.0 and newer fans. -1
i7 2600k? Meh. Your other parts are value oriented while the CPU isn't. i5 all the way. -1 because as a gamer, if I'm going to blow money away, first I'd get more video power.
+1 for considering future CF with 750w and UD4

6/10. Hope that helps and good luck!

hmm..maybe a 500gb black for os and a 2tb green for storage?

2500k as well.
hr-02 for cooling
and maybe a 922 or 912 for case. theyre smaller than the 932,dont take as much space but still fit anything :D

+1 4 the modular psu. I would change your DVD 2 sata instead of pata.

Gpu is a personal choice, however consider an Nvidia product 4 overall better driver support.

Consider also, getting a 1tb black and adding a small SSD 4 your OS. The V 2 is a great drive from OCZ.

That will be the fastest 4 startup and they're much cheaper now.

Choice of case is subjective at best. Since you're already getting a full tower, consider the HAF X 4 the usb3
and sata3 support.

It also comes with a gpu fan shroud which I use and it helps considerably with 2 480s in sli.

Looks like a good system! Enjoy the build and results.

ahhh so it wont work??? I need to change something?
you said that the ram wont fit into my mother board because of the heatsing of the CPU...what if i remove the heatsink,stay with the normal, the ram will fit?
well you said that all other parts are value while the CPU isnt, So thats mean that it will be bottlenecking???

By value I meant worth your money or not, and as a gamer, I find little worth in the extra $100 for the i7 2600k. Neither sandy bridge CPUs nor dx11 GPUs will bottleneck each other. They complement each other rather well, but you will notice drop in frame rates if you go below i5

RAM will fit with the normal heatsink as well as other certain models. If you can do without the Vengeance, this is a list of RAM kits and their compatibility with the NHD14:

DDR3 A-Data G-Series
DDR3 A-Data G-Series ver2.0
DDR3 A-Data Plus-Series
DDR3 A-Data Plus-Series ver2.0

DDR3 Crucial Ballistix
DDR3 Crucial Ballistix (Tall Heatspreader)
DDR3 Crucial Ballistix Tracer
