    So far the components that you have listed are all great quality parts and you seem to be on the right track. There are a few exclusions from this list, such as the drives, cooling solutions and a computer case.
    For a very quick and speedy system I would suggest an SSD for the boot-drive in combination with a larger HDD for extra storage. There are plenty of good products for both so do your research and you will be fine
    If you are looking for advise on building a computer then I would highly suggest taking a look at Newegg's "How to Build a Computer" Series (lengthy but the most comprehensive videos I ever saw on the subject) and Tek Syndicates monthly gaming PC's for any budget. If you are interested I will offer the codes Newegg has given me for a discount (I buy a lot of stuff from there never with issues) on a number of products. Some of them will expire soon, but don't take it as a reason to go a impulse buy some things, but it is there if you want it.

    You will be just fine on your new build.
