The only thing not listed is what mainboard you are using for your FX CPU other than that all looks good.

Motherboard? Budget?

Personally not a big fan of that case. I have read that it is a big dust magnet and the fans fail at a pretty high rate.

Any reason you are getting the 8150 and not a 2500K?

Where are you buying from?

I would go with GSkill or Corsair RAM personally. I have never heard of Team Xtreem.

A 32Gb SSD is pretty small....too small for anything but Windows and a few programs. I have a 120GB SSD and still have to be careful how many games I have installed. Some games can be 15GB all by themselves. If you were getting a Z68 system then you could use that small an SSD for caching.

Newegg has the Antec 300 Illusion on great sale right now. I have used them in quite a few builds. Great case for the money.

I would still get GSkill or Corsair RAM.

That SSD is going to leave you disappointed. It's up to you of course but in my opinion that is just too small for a system drive. Once you use an SSD you are going to want all your programs on it.
