Assuming this is for gaming (no graphics or video editing)

change the ram to 4gb x 2.
change mobo to z77 (i like the ASrock z77 extrem4)
change cpu to i5 3570k (i7 is overkill and will give you nothing but a lighter wallet)
change the liquid cooling (if you truley need it... i like the thermaltake FRIO fan) to push pull config.
add max case fans for $9
toss out the 12 in 1 reader. its truly garbage and takes up a 5" bay.
rush shipping will rush quality control. its a risk.
