I would get this processor instead yours http://www.pixmania-pro.com/pt/pt/12345290/art/intel/co...
it is 10% faster for the same price. The suffix S in your processor means it is a lowered power CPU in order to perform Silently.

You might want to know 2-4 of your sata ports in your motherboard will be blocked by your GPU. That won't happen in this mobo: http://www.pixmania-pro.com/pt/pt/13828513/art/msi/b75m... or this http://www.pixmania-pro.com/pt/pt/12795153/art/gigabyte...

And this will be a much better PSU http://www.pixmania-pro.com/pt/pt/19127950/art/corsair/...
Because it is 80+ bronze, Corsair branded, and your system only draws 280W maximum so 430W is still plenty of headroom.
