I'd really recommend adding at least a 120GB SSD instead of another HDD.

Also might check the BR drive - it's probably a DVD-RW also so can save a couple bucks on the second optical drive.

If you can get a cheaper mobo I would. That one doesn't add a lot to the build if there area other options.

Well looking at the other Mobo they do these:-
ASUS® P8Z77-M
ASUS® P8Z77-V LX
ASUS® P8Z77-V LK
ASUS® P8Z77-V
ASUS® SABERTOOTH Z77

What would you suggest out of these sorts?

P8Z77-V LK should be great and it should be the cheapest of the bunch.
