The build looks good and the HD5770 will be fine at 'average' gaming.

I'd look at a HD4870 if you can do without the DX11 support, otherwise it has to be at least the HD5850 for 'high end' gaming.

Change power supply to this ?
Even though you probably don't need it
(future upgrades and more reliable brand plus its Continues power)

its actually a rebranded seagate

I'd drop the 5850 and get a GTX 460 1GB version. They're quite a bit cheaper than the 5850s and run faster than a GTX 465(which is about even to a 5850)

and I also would drop the 1200 and get a HAF X or a cheaper silverstone case. The 1200 is overpriced and its interior is really cramped compared to other full sized cases

[citation needed]

According to this benchmark, the 460 is in a completely different league than the 5850.

EDIT: Upon further investigation, there may be some truth to this, here is a list of some benchmark links:

Hey dude Your Case Is Out Dated Antec released
The df-85 to replace the 1200
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...29087&Tpk=df85 Same price

Better specs in fans = convention in the case

df-85 is improved based on the feed back of the 1200 you have
