-get a i5 3470 given it should be cheaper
-take out the heatsink. you cant use it properly if you dont overclock
-id get a h77 motherboard. you arent overclocking
-get 1600mhz ram
-you dont need a sound card
-get a better case like something from antec or corsair
-xigmatek makes crap. get something like a xfx 550w
-with the money saved, id at least get a gtx 660 or a 7870 video card


and build this yourself. custom builders are usually pretty bad at low end builds and they rip you off.
