Looks good to me except i would change the GPU to a 6870 if possible because the 550TI is a very weak gaming card.

I havent checked the msy website but .......

The antec 300 is a great case with excellent cooling . Now its been replaced by the 300 two , and the budget spot is now fuilled by the Antec one

The one has front USB 3 ports and pretty good cooling still despite losing a front fan spot .
I'd want a mb with internal USB 3 headers .

You may be able to save a bit on RAM . You wont need more than 2 x2 gig for gaming
