I'm new here from Colorado usa and also upgrading my old sys and learning new stuff. you might think about ditching the H61 board and moving to a z68 or a Z77 (even better)

These mobos will compliment your I5 3450 now and in the future much better than the H61 for just a few bucks more

If he's getting an i5-3450, Z77 will be useless because he can't OC.

Overall, the build looks good, but the PSU is overkill. A quality 400-500W (Corsair CX430, 500) should be sufficient. Unless you plan to SLI/Crossfire.

You could probably take that money you saved and get a Radeon HD 7850, the Gigabyte one is only 264 Euros.
