That is a nice setup i don't see nothing wrong other then you only need 8gb of ram and the fisher price watercooling that needs to go in your trash can the rest is fine.

Ok thanks, will check 8gb RAM out and that case as it is a bit cheaper, also changed to a GIGABYTE gtx 670, or would the EVGA be better for gaming etc?
 
I say go for the MSI 670 PE or The Asus Top DUII
ASUS GTX 670 TOP = Silent.
MSI GTX 670 PE = Better Overclocking.

Pick which you care more about. Nothing is Perfect between those 2 card. If you care more about silent, I would choose ASUS, but if you care more about Overclocking, I would go for 670 PE. Both are Excellent card.

Thanks buddy, will probably get an ASUS then. Also, is my motherboard a weakness, what would be the next step up (either ASUS or GIGABYTE)?
