To me it looks great ! But wait for other opinions, I would add a 1TB though (if you need it) .

Looks good to me, but personally i'd go with an evga or xfx video card. Just not a big fan of Asus. Their customer support sucks if you ever need to RMA the card. Keep an eye on best buy though, supposedly starting sunday they will have the seagate 1tb drives on sale for 189.
Nothing to see here.
