You'll have to OC to get the board to run the RAM at 1600. Might as well get these. Cheaper and lower latency. Other than that, perfect build by 63083. Almost identical to what I'm building for my friend. Case is really up to personal preference though. You should have a look for mid tower ATX cases on Newegg.

i would buy a second hard drive and RAID 0 them. it'll make the computer go crazy fast.

its got double the cache and more space for $5 more

It'll also double the failure rate.

Overstatement.
