I'd bump up to the i5 2500k. It's $20 more and still within budget but gives you a lot more room for OC, even if you don't think you'll want to now, it's a good option.

All good but the hard drive. Samsung, Seagate or Hitachi (in that order). Enjoy that rig!

Will consider the CPU upgrade, but I think I'll stick with the HDD, Western Digital hasn't failed me thus far. Any specific reason why I should choose another, or is it just preference?

The WD will be noticably slower and have a higher failure rate. It may serve you just fine though...
