Good choice of hardware...
I have the same PSU, it's awesome.

The only thing I would suggest changing is your case because Apevia cases are cheap plastic that break really easy.

Go with Coolermaster, Silverstone, or Lian Li!!!

It says that it's made out of steel so I'm not really sure what you're talking about.

the front is made of cheap plastic, the case itself might be from steel, but the drive doors are cheap, check out Winsis too, they have very very nice looking cases and decent prices, and have great reviews, i dont own one, but im gonna get a miniATX from them for my next build, it looks awesome... good luck, that'll be one kick ass system bro

the front door is cheap plastic.
I had an Apevia case...the doors falls off when you shut it (and I shut my door softly because it was a $100 case).
Basicly, the entire case is built decent except they skimp out on the front door

I don't really like the OCZ GameXStreams....I would rather have an Ultra X-pro or a Silverstone or a Corsair 620HX.

And the monitor...22" is never good. It uses a TN panel which uses dithering to achieve all the colors a S-IPS monitor does. Because of that, it is cheaper to produce and sell. If you're looking for a quality panel, go with a Dell 2007WFP as seen here: http://outlet.us.dell.com/ARBOnlineS...DESC=ALL&s=dfh
at the bottom of the page, you will find the 2007WFP for 270. Thats is an extremely good price for one, as I bought my 2005FPW for a lot more than that...think 100s more.

And same with other comments at the top...the case needs to go.

With me, i never liked eVGA motherboards. But if it works for you, then by all means go for it.

I appreciate the comments but it would help me more if you said why you don't like ocz GamexStreams and why you don't like eVGA motherboards. Just telling me "I don't like it" confuses me a lot more and makes me kind of think that it's a bad buy.
