    The best building tips I can give here are to read your manuals that come with the parts (mobo manual should be next to you for reference while building). Also, watch this video which is rather well done

    Ask specific questions if you are unsure of anything, better to ask the question than to risk ~$800
    Your parts list looks good, give yourself plenty of time and, most important (IMO), have fun.
