  1. Everything looks very good except the Silverstone Power Supply. That is a dangerous brand.

    For a few dollars more, top quality and safety. Just compare the reviews for the two supplies:

    To save some money there are a few things:

    840 Pro Samsung 256GB. This is a great SSD, the best in fact. You could easily go down to the Samsung 840 250GB and still get great performance but save about $50. Also the Ram. It would be best to get some without the heat spreaders to allow a big cpu cooler to be added:

    CORSAIR 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 Desktop Memory Model CMV16GX3M2A1600C11

    That RAM will save you $90. You do not need fancy ram with the huge heat spreaders. That brings us to the third point. You need a CPU cooler if you plan to overclock.

    The RAM without heat spreader means you can put a huge heat sink on the CPU and it will fit. Having just two ram stick helps too.

    For the best value, Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO

    For the best in cooling, Noctua NH-C14 or NH-D14 or NH-U14S.

    Of course you have selected an expensive case, but that is a very personal choice and remember, you will be staring at it every day.
