Switch the ram for corsair low profile 8GB (2x4GB) 1600mhz and most important ditch that crappy psu for a xfx 550w/650w or corsair tx650w.
And switch the monitor for an ASUS VS239H-P (better monitor and it's an ips monitor)

Nice system mate :) , only remark is your ssd choice and psu
First of all sandisk isn't really known for speed, maybe a samsung or a ocz?
Also buy a 128gb ssd, so you can install some more programs on it, because 64gb isn't alot :p 
Also the psu you chose isn't 80 plus certified at all, so maybe try to find one thats at least 80 plus bronze, it's gonna save you A LOT of money if you do.
Seasonic makes some of the best psu's on the market, so try and get one of them if possible.
