I still need to decide on fans, and I'm not entirely sure if I want the PSU. I mostly chose it because I don't know if I'll ever want to throw in another 760 down the line. I'm trying to stay within the realm of an exact cost to performance ratio. What would you change? I want this thing to look uniform and professional and still be affordable and semi-futureproof.

Are you trying to stay within a certain budget?

I have nearly 5k at my disposal but I'd like to stay within 1200 because that seems to be the top tier performance cost without getting into meager improvements for the sake of bragging rights. I'm not into that at all. I play mostly solo RPGs and never really touch multiplayer so I don't mind getting 30fps. To me I can never tell the difference. I'm not a graphics whore either so I would like this thing to last about the same time as a console before falling into med/low settings. I'm not a frequent upgrader.

You said you wanted a professional look, and I think that case is a little more professional than the other. Most of your build was good, just needed a little tweaking.

Damn that is a sexy case. Would look mighty fine on a desk and no one would think it was a gaming rig. Any other suggestions regarding any of the other components? Should I downscale the PSU? WOuld an i5 get me by for 5 years?

Honestly, I would stick with an i5. When you feel like it's lagging behind, you can overclock it and it should last you a while longer. The PSU I would keep, just in case you decide to throw a second video card in.
The rest of your components look good. The CPU cooler I changed, simply because the 212 EVO is supposed to be one of the best tower coolers out there. It's also a lot cheaper.
