Ditch the motherboard and go for a GIGABYTE GA-Z87X-D3H about the same price getting much better bang for your buck with a Gigabyte especially when overclocking and all the other features it has.

Ditch the case and fans and go for Corsair air series fans and the Corsair 300R case or 400R if budget can be stretched.

Look at some Evga or Gigabyte branded cards i swear by Evga for their extended warranty but either of the 3 Msi/Giga/Evga will be fine.

I would also go with a Corsair modular 650/750TX or HX Power supply.

Best solution

I suggest you switch that RAM for Vengeance Pro 1866Mhz RAM. The PSU is weak, look into a HX650. As for the keyboard, there's much better than Razer out there. If you'll be doing FPS gaming and have no interest in a bunch of programmable keys on your keyboard, go for the Corsair K70, if you will use programmable keys, then Corsair K95. These two keyboards have the best mechanical switches, really made for fast paced action games. They have programmable individual backlighting, and for the price, they are simply great. It's funny because everything I mentioned here is from Corsair, but I'm not exactly a Corsair fanboy, just so happens that the things that needed improvement could be replaced by a better, Corsair product. The mouse is great, I personally own the RAT 7, and I dig it, I've had over 12 mice in the past, and this is the first one I really am starting to like, since it's fully customizable, I can make it longer, shorter, heavier, higher, add a pinky rest, remove a pinky rest, program buttons, etc. If I'm doing casual gaming I'll change the back to the highthened palm rest, if I'm going for a marathon I'll switch over to the grippy, rubber palm rest, etc. And it looks so cool!

MSI's graphics card is cool, quiet, has some handy presets, and overclocks better from my tests.

Your rig is nice but there can be some improvements at the same price!
The SSD - why to go for 128 GB samsung 840 pro if you can get a ssd around 250GB and even better performance at same price. Go for samsung 840 evo ssds.
