So for the case I will change it to the Black/Green or the Razer edition of it.http://pcpartpicker.com/user/Sack-of-Bonbons/saved/mwYQzy

I would swap out the ram for a cheaper kit. You can find 2x4 1866mhz Ram for about $75. Also, I would drop the SSD and upgrade the GPU because it's a gaming build. You can always add a SSD in the future, but it'll be more costly to upgrade your GPU. Dropping the SSD might get you a R9 270x or a GTX 760.

Also, AMD is always an option for gaming. It'll be cheaper with very similar performance, so consider it.

im assuming your budget is $1000, i swapped out some parts. This build is overclockable and I gave you a far better gpu. Also that RM Corsair model has had lots of problems with the capacitors im unaware if that has been fixed yet. Great choice on the case im going with the black/red one!
