What price are those? A link would be better, to know where you are buying it and the price.

Nice case. I have one myself. Only mine has a side window, and fans are blue led.

Why not get A WD Black 1TB? It will run a lot faster.

What model are those G.Skills? Are those RipJaws?

For the GFX, I like the XFX 5770. Newegg.com - XFX HD-577A-ZNFC Radeon HD 5770 (Juniper XT) 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
Lifetime warranty. Out of stock atm, though.

If you can, get the RipJaws by G.Skill. They are more worth your money.
