Pretty Cool, but you're gonna need a a better PSU, maybe a Gold-rated Seasonic Modular one. I assume you plan to overclock?

I might a little bit but I don't plan on doing much.

You will need a better psu for this build. That unit does not belong in a gaming build especially if you plan on overclocking as its ripple suppression is not that great. Higher ripple will prevent you from hitting higher overclocks and could damage your system over time. The Corsair CXM 550W, Seasonic G series 550W or Corsair RMx would be a much better alternative.
