Glance at my parts list? First build.

I read through some build suggestions and I've assembled this off of them. Before I hit the buy button I thought I'd ask you guys to look over it and make sure I'm not screwing something up.

I'm a big fan of value, so if I'm spending too much for something please tell me so.

Thank you very much for your time.

    Memory is a bit overpriced, you can get it for about $65.
    you could probably get a cheaper motherboard too.
    Other than that, everything looks fine. You can get windows other ways for cheaper, ex ebay and reddit have it for like $20. but that's up to you.
