I'm probably going to receive these pieces within a week, and I am just wondering if there's anything else I need to buy(or should buy) to finish this build completely(except monitor/keyboard/mouse). I'm just making sure I have 100% of what I need to build this computer, without waiting an other week to order more stuff after all these pieces came in. Thanks

Looks good.
everything you may need you already have, i think, you'll just need some screwdrivers

Yep, you're good - nice pick on the video card, by the way.

Thermal paste is the only thing that stands out to me - you want arctic silver 5, arctic cooling MX-2 or -4, or something equally good quality.

is there a reasaon why you need an $189 motherboard? In pretty sure the one around 120-140 would have done everything you would need

Also your RAM is 1.35V should have got 1.5V no too big of an issue though

I would have change the PSU to another brand like corsair better quality
