PSU: CORSAIR Builder Series CX500 500W ATX12V v2.3 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC ($70)

CPU: Intel Core i5-4670 Haswell 3.4GHz LGA 1150 ($220)

It looks good. Question about the RAM though, is it a 8GBx1 or 4GBx2 kit? You'll eke out more performance if you do 4GBx2 (but it's not really a big deal).

With 4Gb x 2 sticks you will be in Dual Channel mode and will have better performance for sure.
