Everything looks good and if you aren't wanting to go above that price point you are pretty much set to go. You should be able to play most games well.

Are you Insane? You were going to buy a Crap for that much money.
That processor was Very old was going to Bottleneck your system.

I think you should get a cheaper Mouse.

You will be so much happier with this build. Your case looks cool but you really should worry about performance with a budget. No one is going to say "Nice looking case you got there." You can impress with how it actually performs. I don't recommend Win 8. Let Microsoft work out all of the quirks, then upgrade later if you want. From your original, it looked like you want to overclock, so I made it possible with the 3570k and Z77 motherboard. If you don't want to OC, then you can save in those two departments. You had a good choice for GPU but I bumped it to a 7870. One thing that I agree with Sumukh is the mouse. I can play any game all day on a three button mouse. Once again, on a budget, go for performance.
