Only thing I can see:

Since you're significantly under budget, I'd swap to an ASUS or Gigabyte motherboard as they are top tier. Asrock is a spin-off of ASUS but I personally consider them second tier.

I'd recommend a better CPU cooler. The Hyper 212+ is the standard aftermarket budget cooler. I'd look at a Noctua NH-D14 or a Thermalright Silver Arrow.

Well that's my 2c.

Actually I don't think that you need to worry about your motherboard. Instead i would rather take some of that excess cash and sink it into a 128GB SSD so you don't need to delete every redundant program that you install onto it. Also, if you are going to be gaming, i would recommend buying a gaming keyboard and mouse as they are oh so comfortable.

I would recommend:

3500DPI Razer Deathadder

Logitech G110
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Razer Sphex desktop skin (its a mouse pad but its 0.24mm thick so it becomes a part of your desk and is nearly zero friction with a Deathadder

or if you are a low sensitivity gamer a larger cloth mouse pad such as a:
