Looks to be much better than what I picked out. However, would it be smart to have a 500W power supply? And is this future proofed?

And for my video card, I would also go with an MSI $480.

Asus H110M-K Should do the job if your fine with size As you save on case size as well by maybe getting nzxt 210 case and your build doesn't really look like it needs full atx

In other words same performance for less cash so you can spend more on other things
