lol no but that is as good but it must have taken a while to type newegg has wishlists so you can save all items in your cart into a wishlist and then it is viewable through one link, anyway back to your build.

psu: personally I would go with an antec true power trio but that is because Iam a fan boy .
Motherboard looks great should be compatible.
great Ram
Great graphics cards are you going to use the step up program to get the latest and greatest when it comes out???
good harddrives run a little hot but that isn't really an issue as you have such a good case (also there is a jumper a little plastic thing lol on the back of the harddrives you need to remove it or else the harddrive will run with 1.5gb/sec sata rather then 3gb/sec)
good choice of soundcard
great speakers
I don't know about that mouse but it has good reviews so far and its not a life/death issue.
great keyboard
that monitor is incredible trust me you will fall in love with it like I have mine it seems to attract fingerprints though so be careful
good cooling

I only thing I could add is you may want some form of cable ties just to keep everything neat and maybe some lighting. I have heard that the antec comes with good stock fans but you may want some different ones if you go for a special colour scheme with case lighting or just want slightly better cooling

Just made a wish list, but I don't think its viewable by the public. Link.

Checking out the step up program right now, most likely will get it based on what I've read so far.

Chose these as I couldn't find the ones I used on my last build, and they seem fairly good.

Probably wont get different fans, unless the temps are too high.

The step-up program comes with all evga video-cards and means that you have 90 days to return your card and upgrade to a new one and just pay the difference. all you have to do to use the step-up program is buy a card from evga instead of another brand

those cable ties look fine I prefer cable spirals which are easy to use and look better in my opinion. you cold get some lights aswell to make your case glow that is what I am currently searching for parts on mine I plan to mod a plexiglass window on to the top

The graphics card is EVGA.

I generally go for performance over flash, so no extra lights this time.

You've inspired me to create a completely glass case, for my next build.

Wish list
