What do you want to buy beside the mobo? Budget?

excellent psu, more then enough power, might consider modular though since your case seems kind of tiny. The tx's have a lot of cables. Look at the hx series from corsair.

Thanks for the feedback so far.
Everything besides the i5,ram, and case. With the mobo I just thought saving some money might be nice but it's not necessary.

@oz73942 I was leaning towards modular at first but decided not to because of price. Just now though I just took another look and the hx750 is only 126 after rebate so I think I will probably switch over.
