Hey guys, so I've never built a pc before and these are the parts I'm thinking of getting. I'm wanting any suggestions or opinions on these as they are not set in stone but what I thought would go nice perfomance wise and visually.

It could be cheaper, but it would lose the looks then.

Only thing to change is Windows 8.1

We can talk about Windows 7 or Windows 10, but Windows 8.1 is off the list.

It looks good tho I think 650w is a little high, I used to spec 550w for ~350w i5/970 combo, and the crucial mx300 is better value imo with the same kinda real world loading performance.
