Post Lancelot - Bitfenix Shinobi AMD build

Hey OC3D!

Here's the new build that I am considering. Both the name and colour scheme of the build are based upon the 'Lancelot' Kinghtmare/Frame from the anime Code Geass, which is a white, gold and black scheme. I found that the Bitfenix Shinobi, in white with the custom gold trim suited this scheme perfectly.
Here is the full planned spec:

CPU - AMD FX-6300
Motherboard - Asrock 970 Pro3 AM3+
RAM - Teamgroup Xtreem LV 8GB (2x4GB ) 2133MHz
GPU - ASUS AMD HD 7850 1GB
HDD - Seagate 500GB SATA-III 7200RPM
PSU - Corsair 430W CXM Modular power supply
CPU cooler - Thermaltake Frio

All-in-all, the system costs around £500, and I would like to keep it at about that price range (Or hopefully less!). Thoughts on this system, and any improvements to the spec would be greatly appreciated!

I don't see any need for 2133mhz ram, save the money and get some 1600mhz stuff

would have to agree with seumasbeathan on this one go for the 1600mhz ram piledriver cpu,s dont like anything above 1600mhz fsb for some weird reason i would use the money saved on the ram to buy a slightly better gpu .but it really depends on what you,ll be using this rig for

White shinobi with gold trim, and an all black motherboard and GPU. I might switch out the frio for a dark knight, to fit the scheme

*Drools*

Deffo swap out the Thermaltake cooler, it would ruin that colour scheme completely. Besides, Thermaltake are not the best quality anyway

The rest of the plan seems good, even though I'm an Intel fanboy
