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.
