Good deal?
Some of you may remember the thread I made asking for advice on a gaming PC build I'm planning on. I still haven't quite accrued all the funds but I am getting close.

I'm thinking about making the following purchases.

I've looked over the benchmarks on the CPU, GPU and HDD and they appear to be pretty high end.

I'm more or less wondering, is there is anything not included in the bundle that I may need? ( not including Operating system, monitor, keyboard, or mouse.)

A wide range of things.

A few specifics I'm interested in off my head,
Command and Conquer: Generals 2
Civ 5
End of Nations
Counter Strike: GO
Black Ops 2

I'll admit I'm a bit biased as I'm moderately active in the esports community but that is alot of power you're packing. Personally I'd go with a 2550k, msi Z77A-G45 board, 16 gigs of ram can be found for under $100 nowadays, though it is largely unnecessary. SSD for your os and any hard drive. I've come to enjoy bitfenix cases as they are affordable, have great stock fans, and are high quality. As for your GPU I'm preferential to AMD, but as long as you look at the best performer for the price point you won't go wrong. Tom's hardware has you covered on that. Snag a hyper212 for your cpu and toss in a pc power and cooling psu and you should be set.
