Suggestions, Concerns, or Good to go?

I've had to use my laptop for pc gaming, but am now ready to invest in building a gaming pc. I've put together this setup and was wondering if anybody had any suggestions or if it's good to go. If there's anything that can be switched out to lower the cost, but still be just as good, that would be nice to know as well. Thank you in advance :)

    ram

    hard drive

    -if you are not overclocking, there isnt much reason to get z77 and a aftermarket heatsink
    -added a SSD with the money saved. it should really help with boot times and game loading times. put your apps, the os, and some games on the SSD and the rest on the hard drive


    use the price listed in pcpartpicker for the CPU (179.99) and price match it at this site. save 3 bucks on shipping

    Seems like a good rig, but like TheBigTroll said, you really don't need an aftermarket heatsink unless you're overclocking. The one that comes with the CPU will be fine.
  4. take out that crap raidmax psu...get a antec or corsair 80+
