Hello new Tom's member
I would not suggest going over 8 gigs of ram as you won't see benefits...get a 4gb x 2 ram sticks
I would stay away from crap master power supplies...Asus, Antec and Corsair are good brands
Other than that looks good. You didn't include Windows oem

What are you going to be using the build for - gaming? Video editing? CAD/rendering?

I definitely agree with what was said about the power supply. That fan is OK, get a Hyper 212 Evo instead. If it's gaming get a cheaper motherboard and the i5, and upgrade your video card to a GTX 670. That card reader is junk, there's better ones you can get.
