Thanks! feel free to comment and critisize anything!!
That build looks really good. The only thing I'd suggest is that you don't need 16GB of RAM and the Corsair Vengeance is useless if you don't get the low profile version: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820233186

Ever since Intel’s introduction of the Z77 chipset, motherboard giant Gigabyte has made huge leaps in in improvements on their motherboards all the way from the budget end to the extreme high end and the Z77X-D3H is a perfect example of what kind of top quality products can be achieved.
With support for PCIe 3.0, SATA 3 6Gb/s, 8 channel integrated audio, Gigabyte’s fully digital power delivery system, and ultra durable 4 features, it’s got a lot going for it.
That said, once you realize that Gigabyte only wants a mere $144.99 this makes the Z77X-D3H one of the best priced, fully featured Z77 motherboards on the market today imo!
Memory – 8GB Corsair Vengeance 1600MHz DDR3 Low Profile 1.5v
I'm going to second g-unit recommendation! With excellent reliability, great performance, a low profile and an amazing price, there really isn’t a better option on the market.
The rest looks great although you could get
