Feedback appreciated, just if you upgrade something try to downgrade something to compensate for it in cost.
Note that this is pretty noticeably a gaming computer...

Everything looks alright, normally I would suggest 8gb ram for gaming but at that price I don't see any reason not to get 16. You could go 8 for about $20 less and go for a Haswell/LGA1150 motherboard due to Ivy Bridge/LGA1155 being discontinued soon. If you are only gaming, not rendering or editing then I would say go with 8gb/haswell because if you are not using anything that will take advantage of the 16gb, you will see more performance gain from the 4670k than having 8gb unused ram.
