i dont really see much you could change here honestly. Its not only rounded, but incredibly strong, this will do well for gaming, video editing, streaming, and the likes. The only changes that could be made will depend heavily on how you plan on using the computer. (for incredibly CPU intensive tasks,and not as much gaming, i would go 6 core intel (12 w HT) and a 760 GPU or 770 (both still can game incredibly well). OR if JUST gaming, i might consider the i5 4670k (overclock to high heaven) and get two 780's in sli, and maybe an extra high res monitor (things to enhance the gaming experience more so)

To be honest, all of this is way overkill for a single 1080p monitor.
