I tall looks good, but I'd change the drive.

I'd go for 2 of these:

They're WDCs at the same price, same storage. I'd prefer to have Seagate or WDC in a gaming rig set up with RAID 0, to get an extra oomph.

Looks very nice. I don't know too much about Intel CPUs but the motherboard appears to be good. Just concerned about the "smallness" of the hard drive. I got over 1tb of data on my PC.

The spinpoint F3 line is faster than any of those. This one is spot #2, and the 1TB version is #3:

For reference, the OCZ Vertex is an SSD, and those WDC models in spots 8, 9, and 10 are VelociRaptors. The Intel on top is an SSD as well.

edit: All of those are also on the full list, if you can find them:

In comparison, here's the Caviar Green 500GB:
http://www.harddrivebenchmark.net/hd...WDC+WD5000AADS
It's a 5,400 RPM model, and is meant for low power operation(which it fails at), not speed.

With a 920, I'd get a better GPU.... if you can't afford, you could do an AMD build to save some bucks for more GPU power. 5850 would be awesome.
