I have changed the CPU to the latest generation (Haswell refresh) so I have also changed the motherboard the fit that socket. The CPU cooler has also been changed as it is a very good cooler at a brilliant price. RAM is now fast and cheaper. I put in a 120gb SSD insead of an 128gb as there hardly anything between them as this one is lower in price. OSU was upgraded to give you room for an OC but also just headroom for any upgrades in the future.

Hope this helps :)
