EDIT: Pushed it. Hope that I do not regret this.

Now I just need a 7950, two red Bitfenix LED red 30cm strips and a H100 and some really good thermal paste.

Looking forward to it. Purchased the H100 and the 1C24 and the rest this morning......minus the red bitfenix cables. Figured I may as well.....will have to use the onboard GPU until I get enough funds for a video card but at least I will have it up and running.

I must say....HOLY CRAP! Watching a Bluray on a IPS is a REAL eye opener.

It will serve the purpose until funds allow a GPU. I don't think there will be any reason to regret your purchases. They are all solid choices (and that's enough PSU to easily handle a second 7950 and OC everything...and then some).

Actually I am VERY surprised on how powerful that iGPU is. I was playing Dirt 2 on Medium settings at 720p without a hiccup.

Impressive!
