Save money and get the 8320. The 8350 is just an overclocked 8320 (which you can do for free yourself) with a better cooler (irrelevant, as you're getting a third-party cooler anyway). Maybe put the money towards a 280X?

Also, this RAM is only $5-$10 more, but it is DDR3-2133.

I personally don't like the looks of Thermaltake's cases, NZXT makes great cases, some for about $20 less than the one you have listed.

Any reason for Win7 over Win8?

The memory you suggested won't really make a difference, it is CAS 11 whereas the memory he selected is CAS 9.

Doesn't the ideal CAS number go up as the RAM speed does? As in 1600's ideal CAS is 9, 1866 is 10 and 2133 is 11?

I found 2133 CAS 9, it's cheaper than the CAS 11.

Thanks a lot. I have windows 8 on my laptop I like it but I'm not A fan of the setup of the tabs. I like the nzxt cases but I my friend has this case and I really like the look an the space in the back if the case as well.

Here's what I chose now. I don't know about the ram so I kept it the same

You don't have to get that case, just a suggestion.
