  1. 1. You can drop the PSU into 650W, 80+ Bronze.
    2. Newegg charges sales tax in California, which will bring down your budget.
    3. The mobo is unnecessary unless you need the extra features (Wi-fi, Bluetooth)
    4. Get a SSD, preferably 256GB.
    5. Change to Corsair Low-Profile RAM to ensure your cooler will work with it.
    6. The hard drive you chose is a laptop drive... get a Caviar Black.
