Memory: 8GB (2x4GB) Corsair DDR3 Vengeance Jet Black, PC3-14900 (1866), Non-ECC, CAS 9-10-9-27, XMP, 1.50V
Case: Tsunami Gaming Manager Black Mid Tower Case w/o PSU
Graphics: 2GB Gigabyte GTX 650 Ti, Windforce 2X, 28nm, PCIe 3.0 (x16), 5400MHz GDDR5, GPU 1032MHz, Cores 768

you can save money and get a little bit slower ram. the one you picked is 1866 while you can use 1600 mhz speeds
i would pick a better brand power supply, if you cheap out on that component it can short circuit your components
