Looks very good, couple of things, you'll want a cooler for your CPU, might look at the Hyper 212 EVO, very good, about $35, on the DRAM might look to 1866 or 2133, Haswell likes fast sticks and you'll see the performance increase, a little in gaming moreso elsewhere, and they run right about the same as entry level 1600 sticks, would look at the Tridents, best I've found for Haswell, and before you pick up the Xonar, might try the ROG on board sound, its very good, you'll love the Hero, great mobo, haven't found anything to beat it yet.

Okay, thanks, and also I'm not planning on overclocking so I figured that the stock cooler would enough, but I have read that it can quite noise. Some people say so but others say it works just fine so i'm not sure.

Okay thanks. Also don't you need to overclock the ram to 1866mhz because ram comes stock at 1333mhz?

You need to set the DRAM, DRAM is made to run at it's advertised freq, however when first installed in a mobo it goes to the mobos default, which is normally 1333, with an Intel rig, you simply go into the BIOS and enable XMP, select profile one and the BIOS will set the sticks up for you
