New Computer Build-AMD FX 8350 with 16Gb ram and

I have recently built a new computer for home to run my stuff. This is one of the first builds I have done for my self. I have build quite a few for customers.

Here is my build:
Case:
CM Storm Enforcer
Extra Case Fan:
Cooler Master MegaFlow 200mm
Power Supply:
XFX PRO850W Core Edition Power Supply ATX 850
Motherboard:
ASUS SABERTOOTH 990FX R2.0 AM3+ AMD
CPU:
AMD FX-8350 FX-Series Eight-Core Processor Edition, Black AM3 FD8350FRHKBOX
CPU fan:
Noctua 6 Dual Heatpipe with 140mm/120mm Dual SSO Bearing Fans CPU Cooler NH-D14
GPU:
Gigabyte Radeon HD 7970 WF 3X GHz Edition 3GB GDDR5
Ram:
Corsair Vengeance 16GB (2x8GB) DDR3 1600 MHz
Hard Drive:
Samsung Electronics 840 Pro Series 2.5-Inch 128GB
Blue Ray Drive:
Asus Black 12X BD-ROM 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-ROM SATA Internal Blu-Ray Drive
Thermal Paste:
Arctic Silver 5


also needed a Mini Display Port to HDMI cord because I didn't have any around:
HDE® Mini Display Port to HDMI Adapter Cable - 6 ft.

If you are going to do a system that has more than 2 displays with a single GPU you will need to have an active adapter for your devices. Here is an active VGA adapter.
Cirago Mini DisplayPort to VGA Active Adapter (DPA2011)
for active DVI adapter.
Accell B087B-006B UltraAV Mini DisplayPort to DVI-D Single-Link Active Adapter ATI Certified (Black)

Currently there is no active HDMI adapters for mini display port.
