  1. Crucial m4 is better IMO.
    for PSU,both are good.
    chnage the case for anything like NZXT Phantom or 400r or 600t.
    Asrock provides pci-e 3.0 go for it.
    gpu is enough for your resolution.
    evberything else looks good.
    212+ EVO is also a great cooler.
  2. I recommend that you consider a SLI setup.
  3. but i realy like this case :)
    i changed to A-DATA S511 over Crucial m4 because of toms review:
