  1. you forgot the HDD in there just get a 1TB from western digital on amazon about half off

    this isn't really my taste just because i go for more of a pure gaming build where i would just go off and get ivy bridge for a lot less

    i would get a more reliable brand named PSU maybe Corsair or Seasonic having a great time with them
  2. please go with an lga 1155 build. LGA2011 is for $2.5K+ builds.

    Are you in the US?

    build something around this if you are:

    asrock z77 extreme4 $89.99

    i5-3570k $189.99

    Samsing 8GB 30nm low voltage - some of the best ram available but i undertand if you don't like how it looks. 49.99
