Currently trying to built a new pc, mainly for gaming. I already have the RAM ( Corsair Vengeance LPX 8 GB) and the graphics card ( Saphphire Radeon 7970 3 GB) so I had to build around them.
I had some thoughts about the case not fitting the graphics card, but I checked for the dimensions and they seem fine. Any comments or corrections on the build? I am by no means an expert in the subject, so any help would be much appreciated. https://pcpartpicker.com/list/dMqM3Z
 
If this is for gaming, then this should be better...

Everything should fit in that case, I would upgrade the GPU next though, missing out on a lot.

Also you can get rid of that cooler, the 2600 comes with a decent cooler, sure not quite as good as that one, but it'll keep it pretty cool and they are pretty quiet. Its not like them older coolers that AMD use to use, or the crap ones Intel for some reason still likes to use.
