Nice build.

For a desktop, I would stick with Windows 7.

The hard drive is sticking out like a sore thumb to me. Everything else is fast and high/higher tech but you choose a slower hard drive. If you're planning on gaming I'd suggest a non-green drive.

Now that I look at it again, you never want to use a "green" drive as your boot drive.
