This is my second build that I am making. First one ended up being about 1400 dollars and I am aiming this one for 2500 or 3000 dollars. I was wondering if I can get some advice on parts either to save money or for better performance. Also I need help with finding an awesome looking mid tower case with a window in it. http://pcpartpicker.com/user/all2fresh/saved/P3rV3C

Ram was specifically made for mpower motherboards so it looks great with it. The lightnings are overpriced I won't deny it, but as a result this build will look absolutely badass.
