    Fine
    > ram looks cheap (look for at least 1600MHz CL8 imo)
    > Spinpoint F3 is far more awesome than anything Hitachi can make, but the recent incident with the factories is fucking up prices
    > Crucial m4 is a great all-rounder, but you can probably get other SSDs with similar performance cheaper
    > 800D is huge and made for modding imo, only get it if you have everything planned out
    > sound card is already integrated, if not the ASUS Xonar Essence STX is awesome
    > dvd/bluray unit is obsolete imo, most of the things you need (installations etc.) are done via usb or online, only reason I would see in getting one is watching movies (which can be, yet again, also downloaded)

    Solid build otherwise, I would only suggest rethinking the case & bluray drive, perhaps finding better ram and a better deal for the SSD. If you're not looking to save money the gtx 580 is beastly, otherwise you could perhaps consider AMD
