  1. That looks good - here's a couple of things I would suggest:

    1. The mouse mat isn't needed - you're spending money needlessly there.

    2. I didn't see a cooler listed - what are you using there?

    3. You should get a Windows 8 license - it's legal for system builders to use it now and I've been using it for a week with no real issues to report yet. Yeah Metro is frustrating to use but I think I'm getting the hang of it.

    1. Very true, if i have left over money i may as well because my mouse mat is getting old :)

    2.CPU Cooler? I listed it, (Noctua)

    3.Yeah but im debating, do i really like Windows 8? Its a Phone operating system with recycled windows 7 in my opinion :(
