None.

CPU: Newegg.com - Intel Core i5-2500K Sandy Bridge 3.3GHz &#40;3.7GHz Turbo Boost&#41; 4 x 256KB L2 Cache 6MB L3 Cache LGA 1155 95W Quad-Core Desktop Processor BX80623I52500K

Memory: Newegg.com - G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB &#40;2 x 2GB&#41; 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 &#40;PC3 10666&#41; Desktop Memory Model F3-10666CL9D-4GBRL

Motherboard: Newegg.com - ASRock P67 Extreme4 LGA 1155 Intel P67 SATA 6Gb&#47;s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Video Card: Newegg.com - EVGA 01G-P3-1370-TR GeForce GTX 460 &#40;Fermi&#41; 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

Power supply: Newegg.com - SeaSonic S12II 520 Bronze 520W ATX12V V2.3 &#47; EPS 12V V2.91 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply

Case: Newegg.com - COOLER MASTER RC-690-KKN1-GP Black SECC&#47; ABS ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Total: $773

You get:

The best CPU you listed
Better video card than any you listed
Better power supply
Better case

I wouldn't bother with whichever fans you picked out if they are only $4 each, they will end up moving not a lot of air and being loud
