Nice solid build you got there, I don't see any problems with it. Good job on picking your parts.

this is a better motherboard http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
and whats the price for the case? i get the cases for like 25$
for the extra money you get if you change the case + mobo get a i5-3570K its only 40$ difference, and you would get 15$ from case and 15$ from mobo for a total of 30$ and get a 10$ somewhere else :p 

a matter of opinion: unless you are getting a BD drive just dont use the normal drive as its getting old, windows format can be done on a flash drive and almost everything can be done via flash
another thing why not ditch both storage spaces and get a hybrid? i'm planning to get one as there is only a few "1 or 2" seconds difference between it and the SSD http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=22-178-... with that you'd save almost 50$

Solid setup. You're good to go. Remember to get those parts quick especially the PSU, because the deal on it is ending soon.

Just want to point out that Asrock's Doggy Style stuffs are even worse than MSI B75MA-E33. And that case is priced right, it was the Elite version. Discrete SSD is less likely to broke than a hybrid one also.

Would I need a cooler if I were to use this build? I forgot to ask this sorry.

Best solution

Nope, the stock cooler provided with the i5 is good enough.
