i see some issues.

Lose the prof wiring. not needed with the way todays cases are designed. my cyberpower came perfect and i didnt have it.

change the RAM to 1600mhz.

Absolutely toss that monitor. i got a 23" ASUS HD 1920 x 1080 on newegg for $130. get it off newegg on one of their promotion sales. (sign up for the newsletter).

Get rid of the liquid cooling. i assume you are not doing anything extreme, OC to the max or video editing, liquid cooling is an added headache. just get a Hyper EVO 212 fan or Thermaltake FRIO. simple, easy, push-pull blows the heat out.

Add Max case fans for $+9

I would be mostly using it for gaming, and i heard that the liquid cooling was good for it, or was i told wrong.

No... thats fine. but unless youre OC'ing a lot i dont see a need for liquid cooling. but if you want to go that route, get a good one, not the free crap that comes for free from CP. corsair H60 is one of the best. but again, i prefer a good ol' fashion fan. Thermaltake FRIO is great.
