It would be great if you guys could take a quick look over my build, gonna mainly use it for gaming and everyday surfing etc. My main concern is whether everything will fit in the case (especially the Noctua NH-D14), and if you have any suggestions to replace parts, I'll be happy to listen :)

If you are happy with the total price it looks good to me.

One thing I would like to note: You should reconsider if you really want Windows 8.
IMO It stinks.
