  1. Hi. That build looks good but you can save money with the i5-3470 and a H77 motherboard since it looks like you won't be overclocking. A good 550W PSU is sufficient but if you want that 650W PSU, you'd better order it by the 31st to use the $30 off promo code.

  2. I would recommend getting a 1TB HDD just to be safe. It only costs $15 more.
  3. That certain PSU you have chosen has a new revision which gives it 80 plus GOLD certification so when you order that, just watch out for it. Also you can drop the CPU down to a 3470 and grab a H77 motherboard like the ASrock H77M like johnsonjohnson has already said.
