Default Re: Suggestions needed for my budget gaming build

I just ordered everything from newegg today.
Some good changes I've made with you guys' help.
Thanks!

I've decided to get GTX 570 HD SC. Since it is actually cheaper than the non-SC card after rebate.
I know it's weird but SC version is $305 after rebate and the non-SC one is $315.
And also chose better timing version of G.SKILL Ripjaws X (Blue one w 8-8-8-24)
This one also got cheaper than the red one (9-9-9-24) because of 25% off offer (ended yesterday..) only on the blue one.
Also I got a cheaper CPU fan (CM Hyper212+) since I saved pretty good amount for discounts and rebates.
Thanks again for the help!

It has been a month since this build's been up and running smoothly as I wanted.
Thanks for all the people who helped me choose the right parts. (parts list is in the previous post)
I attached some pictures (sorry not good pictures...).

CPU and GPU are mildly OC to 4.2GHz for the CPU and 816/1632/1995 (core/shader/memory clock) for the GPU.
CPU idles at 38c and max load at 60c stable playing games for hours.
I've put an additional fan which is the only one connected to the case fan controller sits in the middle, right next to the GPU, to blow the air directly to the GPU.
Everything else is just as is.
I'm satisfied with everything but especially I love the case. It looks and works amazing. feels like $200+ case. I'm so glad I got it.
Now all I have to do is to wait for BF3 to be loaded in...
