Some changes -
1. CASE - Instead of spending $26 additionally, go with a better case,...
NZXT Lexa S - Is about $5 more, but with better features and 4 stock fans...

Also the blowers are generally noisy,...

2. RAM - Dont go with 3 sticks, these boards are dual-channel so better to populate 2/4 slots to take advantage of the Dual-channel config

3. If planning to overclock, then a CPU cooler -

Thanks alot i will update some stuff!

I understand what you are saying about the 2 sticks instead of 3 but is 4gb DDR3 viable for high end gaming these days? or should i buy another 2 of the same sticks and go with 8gb?

^ IMO for gaming, 4GB would still suffice, not to forget the 1280MB of RAM on the graphic card,...
