Ok I am not going to over clock, no SLI, just a good price/performance budgety PC so price is kind of important i.e., video card GTX760 @$250 ok but if I can get GTX 770 @300 probably will jump on it. Will use it @ home for games, ms office, internet, email, kids, wife.

CPU: Intel Core i5-4430 3.0GHz Quad-Core Already got this
Case: Already got this
Motherboard: GIGABYTE GA-H87M-D3H could go with (ASRock H87 Pro4) but GA has less issues and a bit better quality. Any other suggestions?
Memory: G.Skill Ares Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600
Storage: Samsung 840 Evo MZ-7TE250BW 250GB Anything suggestion here i.e., better compatibility with certain mobo, more stable, much faster etc?
Video Card: EVGA GeForce GTX 760 2GB Video Card
Power Supply: SeaSonic S12II 620W 80+ Bronze Certified ATX I'd really like a 80+ Gold just can't find something in comparable price range
Mouse Mad Catz R.A.T.9 Anything less pricy and as good?
Keyboard No idea here would like something with backlight not as expansive as RAT 9
Monitor Asus PB278Q or Dell UltraSharp U2713HM 27

Guessed on a case, but kept a "standard" size. The Gigabyte board you laid out is fine. Alternatively, the ASUS below is a good board as well. Memory is fine, just make sure the latency is no higher than CAS9. The 840 EVO and M500 to head-to-head for storage. You can't go wrong with either for an "entry level" drive. The Seasonic 620w is a great PSU. No need to opt up to Gold, but nothing against it either.
