HDD: Changed to WD Blue 1 TB, WD Black isn't worth it in my opinion as you already have a SSD for very fast operation. WD Blue isn't terrible slow either compare to Black.
PSU: Changed to Antec HCG-620M, cheaper and not that you need the wattage, but it's the cheapest good PSU I can find.

Uhh, Blacks and Blues have the same speed, but Blacks have a better warranty, and thus a better lifespan.

More money was spent in certain parts of the build than was necessary. Hence why my build had a GTX 780 vs a 770. :)

Eh, it looked like he was aiming for some nice overclocking with a nice board, cooler, and higher frequency RAM.

Overclocking to the extreme won't do you much for games compared to a far better GPU. ;)  My build still will overclock decently, though. A mild to mid level overclock with a GTX 780 will game better than an extreme overclock with a 770. GPU matters more. Intel doesn't gain much from higher frequency ram. Only reason I have it was it was on sale for less than 1600 kits.

I agree with most of your point as before, but I do think that higher frequency RAM tend to be higher quality and most likely have been overclocked. That would matter in overclocking when you mess with NB multiplier. What do you think?

Ram quality is good as long as it is from a reputable company, regardless of speed. You don't mess with any multiplier but the CPU multiplier with Intel now.

Doesn't NB frequency relates to how fast the data transfers on the motherboard? Like the transfer speed of RAM/SSD/GPU to the CPU and vice versa.

Memory controller is on the CPU now. I don't think Intel uses a northbridge anymore.
