PC gaming build that you would spot me as a noob

I am trying to build a game build. here is what I put together: http://pcpartpicker.com/user/cybermoo/saved/qGtQzy

I am thinking it is way too much but i am tired of getting 12 FPS on diablo 3. Hence you will probably notice the ridiculous build. My wish list is to build a computer to get 200 fps on diablo and also be ready for the upcoming unreal tournament.

Does anyone have a good idea on how I should do this with spending the least?

The only thing I do not want to compromise is the PC came.

TIA!

Did you saw that the cooler is not compatible with the case?

well I can tell you one thing, with that price range it won't happen. Expect to spend 3000$ for a 200 fps range. ISH.... ? Anyway's if you are only worried about performance. I can come up with something better than you've got. and by PC came. I assume you mean PC case. No offense dude. But that case kind of blows. While it might be nice to look at, it offers very little in terms of performance or usability. There are a ton of good looking cases out there that offer much more performance. Please let me know if you are dead set on sticking with it. Also, you don't need to get 200 fps. 60 is the max anything higher than 45 and you won't notice an increase.

I meant case. I am a duddett... Anyways I know it is ridiculous computer. I want something that meets my expectation. 200 FPS on diablo 3. I have also not found any case pretty enough to expose in my living room... I would love to have you suggest me the best kind that meets my goal. Would you mind suggesting me one, please?

Here,

This will give you the looks, and potentially the 200 FPS you are looking for, while being about 500$ cheaper than what you originally had. More money does not always necessarily mean better :P

Ok! I agree! This looks awesome! nailed it!

You think windows 8.1 is better than 7? for future things to come?

Do you also think the mini tower will have separate drive bay i can remove to fit the card? it seems it is not very compatible.

yes it fits I checked dont worry :P. Most people would probably say yes go with windows 8.1 because it offers future Direct X versions that won't be offered in Windows 7. Personally I can't stand windows 8 so I will be sticking with windows 7 for a long time. This won't mean you won't be able to play future games, It just means you might not get the same quality. If there was anytime to switch to 8.1 for you though, it would probably be now.
