Looks very good to me, the Haf-X has the option of an additional fan on the top. You could add a megaflow 200mm for better cooling.
Hey rubensolo, thanks for your feedback, you say i could add a megaflow fan, i couldnt see any options to purchase extra fans, would this require me to buy them off a different website? Thank you.
Yes, you need to buy them from a different retailer. I purchased mine online and sent it to PCS, they were able to fit it for me.

The GTX 670 should be able to max many games at decent fps in 1 screen. The motherboard and psu should also allow you to add another GTX 670 in the future.
Hey rubensolo, i will be looking to play games on 1 monitor and other apps on diff monitor, with regards to motherboard and psu i choose them so i could possibly add another gtx 670 in future and make pc future proof for few years hopefully.
