Hey there. I was wondering if anyone could give me some feedback on my first computer build. My budget is around $2800 (converted from 15,5K NOK, might vary as the rate changes).

I got some help over at the MMO-Champion forums, but I would like to have others look at it as well.
The only things I already have is a mouse (getting a new one, though) and an external HDD (1TB WD Elements).

Here's the last build copy pasted from there.
Prices are from Komplett.no (which is where I'm buying from), but I'm linking to newegg.

Case: Cooler Master HAF 932, Fulltower, black $181

Power Supply: Corsair AX 750W PSU $252

Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-Z68X-UD3P-B3 $216

CPU: Intel® Core™ i5-2500K Processor $308

CPU Cooler: Noctua NH-D14 $135

RAM: Corsair Vengeance™ DDR3 1600MHz 8GB (2x4GB) CL9 $87

Video Card: MSI GeForce GTX 570 1280MB PhysX $490

HDD: Western Digital Caviar 1 TB Black $116

SSD: Corsair SSD Force Series 3, 60GB $176

Optical Drive: Lite-On DVD±RW Burner IHAS124-19 $37 (couldn't find it on Newegg)

Network Adapter: TP-LINK TL-WN951N 11n Wireless Adapter $64

Keyboard: Logitech G110 $100

Monitor: BenQ 24” LED G2420HDBL $245

Mouse: Razer Mamba $155

OS: Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium NO $146


Total: $2710 (14 882 NOK) + $103 (566 NOK) in shipping = 2813

The only change I would make is the psu. I would go for an 850w myself. Corsair HX850, XFX, or even the Antec 900w Current High Gamer.

The price difference between the 750 and the HX850 (couldn't find the other two) is only $36, so I think I'll go with that one.
