Need someone to look over this build before I buy...

Any thoughts? I really can't afford to go any higher than the price of this build. I've tried to put together components that will give me the most bang for my buck. Did I do a good job of this?

I have a question about the quality of some of the parts though, particularly the motherboard an power supply. Would you say the motherboard I've selected is a good one, quality-wise? It is an Asrock, and it has quite a few bad customer reviews. Sure they are far outweighed by positive ones, but the number of 1 star reviews is still unsettling to me. Also, the power supply is a Corsair CX series. I've heard a lot of bad things about this series. Is it really a solid choice for a psu?

Anyways, here's the build.

Build looks solid. Won't personally change a thing.

Don't mind the consumer reviews, most are unreliable and are just angry @ DOA units.

CX isn't the best, but it's not that bad. Anything we suggest would be higher than $39.99 for that wattage.
