i'll recommended some changes. You should swap your hard drive out for the Samsung Sinpoint f3 1TB, choose a different power supply, any 650w from a name brand like Corsair, Seasonic, XFX... would be perfect. Also make sure you know that that motherboard doesnt support SLI or Crossfire (theres only one spot for a GPU). Finally, you could easily find some RAM with lower latencies than what you picked for a few bucks more here's an example
