It's a good build. You can overlock that mobo securely with some heatsinks on the VRM's cause of the 4+1 Power Design.

I'd recommend getting a bit more wattage PSU, like 600 W, because it CAN go above 500W I think. Try out an online test for how much W you need.

Also consider an AMD video card instead as it's cheaper for performance and works a little better with the AMD chipset on the mobo than the Nvidia card does.

yep that seems right but I'll recommend 500W cause there are stuff like LEDs and Fans the test didn't include.
