Your build looks solid, but I suggest you go with a SSD for your boot drive because that'll make your new build probably boot twice as fast. I would recommend this one from Intel because of its' price http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... ternal-SSD

If this is primarily a gaming machine, you can save some money by going down to a Core i5-3570K, 4GBx2 for RAM, and a 650W power supply. This will give you around $200 back to spend on whatever else you want.

I'd also opt for a MidATX case instead of a FullATX case. Especially for this setup.
