    I would spend less on the psu and case and go for an Intel build and add a SSD. - money does not seem to be an object.

  5. Don't get the coolermaster power supply. There are less expensive power supplies but the one I linked is a very good one. Also look for XFX - made by Seasonic, or Seasonic, Antec... The memory I suggested was 1.5V RAM the memory you chose is 1.65 - to make it run at 1.5 it will have to be clocked slower to adhere to the Haswell cpu specs. Every thing else should be fine. I do like EVGA gpu - have had very good customer support. As for the mobo, I've only used Gigabyte & Asus although I think I may go AsRock for my next one.

    Edit: I see Seasonic makes that psu for coolermaster - no problem there.
    You should be extremely happy with the performance of this build.
