  1. Very good. The only thing I would recommend, if finances allow, is the addition of an SSD, something like a 128GB Samsung 830. They really are worth the cost, for the snappier performance, all round.
    Don't forget an aftermarket cooler, if you want to overclock.
    Happy building.
  2. Looks good, be aware that 400W+ is fine though. 450-500W would be recommended.
