First 'proper' gaming PC build - Anything to change/upgrade?

First 'proper' gaming PC build and I was just wondering if I could improve anything? Budget ~ £750. I'll be using the PC for gaming, recording and editing

 

Also, rough idea on how much fps I'll be getting on AAA games and others like: F4, Battlefront, CS, Feed The Beast(Minecraft), Bioshock Infinite, BF4, Ark, Trine(s), modded Skyrim(A LOT O' MODS) etc etc? High 50/60s?

 

The rig'll be pushing a 24" 1080p(144hz) monitor

(anyone have an idea of how high I'll be able to OC with a 212 evo with two CM Jetflos, push, pull?)

Thanks! 

(if i've broken any rules just comment and I'll edit/delete)

I don't know about that case, but the rest of the system is great. THOUGH, since you're editing/recording, I'd get this CPU instead: http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/p/QNYr4D (Apparently you got that mobo really cheap, so I'd keep it.) The Xeon will perform better in editing and rendering. Also better during recording. If you've already bought the CPU, I wouldn't worry about it.

 

You'll get really good FPS in all the games listed. Comfortably over 60 FPS if you're doing 1080P.

That CPU pushes me out of my budget :( Getting the case simply because for £44, I can get a psu shroud and side window. Cheap and cheerful haha

OK then, the i5 will still perform really good. You're okay keeping it.

It's on a white background, and the text is white, so if you're using the standard theme you won't see it.

Thanks for the input :D Upgrading from a shitty i3 and a 660 D:

Would a 4.2ghz overclock be reasonable with a 212 evo - push/pull? Ambient room temp is like 18-20C

Probably. I push 4.5Ghz on an AMD FX-8350 with a 212 EVO. Temps are great.

I really wanna play around with a 8350, better at rendering than the i5 but worse in all the other areas :/
