If you want to do SLI in the future, you're gonna want to step up that PSU to a 750w. You'll also want to get the hyper 212 evo instead of the 212 plus. The 212 evo offers better heat conductivity.

Try this build...

I also included low profile RAM. You'll want it just in case you run into clearance issues with the bulky heatsink.

The HAF 912 is one of the best bang for the buck cases out there at the moment. It offers excellent air flow and features for a low price.

I'd also recommend you get the crucial SSD. It offers a tad bit more memory and they're highly reliable drives.

Stay away from the Rosewill PSUs. You'll want to stick with a trusted brand such as corsair or seasonic and make sure they're 80+ certified. If you want to do SLI or Crossfire, you'll typically want to go with no less than 750 watts.

Everything else looks good. If you have anymore questions, feel free to ask. Hope this helps; good luck!

The asrock boards are cheaper and packed with the same features as more expensive boards...sometimes even more features.
