    If you built it, can you not say whether it works?

    Is this something you've already physically bought and built, or a list of components you want us to critique?

    The main thing that pops out to me is the WD green HD...
    Green = efficient = slow
    Poor choice for the Boot drive...
    Good for storage but its NOT the best choice for the main drive.
    A WD BLACK edition is the faster option...

    I would also opt for a cheaper PSU...
    Thats ALOT of overkill unless you are specifically going SLI in the near future, or adding an insane amount of hard drives...
    Newegg.com - OCZ StealthXStream OCZ700SXS 700W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready Active PFC Power Supply
    $60 after rebate and has more wattage than the one you linked...
