So far:
MOBO: MSI X79A-GD45
Processor: 12 core 3.2ghz Intel
RAM: lots (32gig ddr3)
GPU's: Nvidia (MSI technically) GTX760 and GTX660

I need a case and a PSU to put this stuff in. For the PSU, I like this: Amazon.com: Sentey® Power Supply 750w 80 Plus Bronze - Mbp750-hs Metal Blade Power 750 Watts / 120mm Sleeve Bearing Fan / Autoswitching 100-240 Voltage / Active PFC / Single +12v Rail / Certified Power Cord / 5 Years Warranty Computer Power Supply -
I still haven't found a case I like. I would like one that doesn't have all the space up front for drives. I don't need it. I doubt I'll have any optical drives at all. It would also be cool if it was pink or black/pink. I also need keyboard/mouse/monitor too, but that's pretty easy. If you have any opinions on these, I'm all ears.

I'm building this as a Christmas present for my son. He LOVES Minecraft. I'm sure it will get used for homework and general messing around on the 'net too. It might be overkill, but I already own the expensive parts. And lastly, no, I'm not liquid cooling it. It's out of my price range.

Lemme know what you guys/gals think.
I would recommend a 1000W power supply. I have a similar nVidia/EVGA/MSI build and the 750W doesn't have enough juice to reliably run your DVD drive or an additional HDD with that geforce card. I upgraded to 1kW and now my terabyte storage and DVD burner never fail. Good luck!
