That is a very nice build! All parts seem very reliable. Not many poor ratings at all.

-The motherboard seems fairly reliable based on the reviews. No problems reported.

-I would definately take i3 over the pentium for sure. I had a computer with a 2.8Ghz Pentium...very slow.

Good luck with the build!
