Looks great!

I would go with a different psu though. $59.99 after rebate

Honestly a 500w psu would be way more than enough for that setup.

That's one of the ugliest cases I've ever seen.

Have a look at these Corsair Carbides in the same price range or less.

my friends advised me to use core i5 2500k with mobo z68 or z77 Instead of FX-8150, i don't know really which is better
i think for fx8150 cuz i use my computer in programs specially 3d & Database, my uses in games not exceed 5%, so i'm really don't know is that okay or better to choose core i5-2500k

2500K is much better.

However the newer i5-3570K is a better choice. If your not overclocking then the 3470 or 3550 is the way to go.

You would want a Z77 or H77 for those cpu's. If you don't plan to overclock or sli/xfire, then the H77 is all you need.

Actually I shouldn't have worded it that way, I know for a fact the 3470 even though it's NOT a K version, will hit 4GHZ very easily without even a voltage bump.
