Nothing to say really. Good solid build ticks all the boxes. You can upgrade that Win 7 to 8 for $15 which is what I'd consider, even if Microsoft has tightened the offer up.

It looks good, except for the z75 chipset motherboard. Get the Extreme 4, instead.

No point. Apart from the feature differences, there is no speed difference. I went with a B75 board for my non-OC build and its fine. Z75 and Z77 should overclock to around the same anyway.
