This pc will mostly be for casual gaming, running your basic MMORPGs mostly (Elder Scrolls, Never winter, GW2) and things like Photoshop perhaps. I've already bought the case, power supply and CPU. There's a great sale for that mobo so I was about to impulse buy it, but I wanted to check with you guys first. Thanks!

Already over my budget..

    The only thing I would've done is probably get a better SSD, like a Crucial M500: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820148693&cm_re=sdd-_-20-148-693-_-Product

    And I would have gotten a cheaper PSU. Otherwise, really good choices, really!
