5/10: would not bang.

  1. Find an equivalent motherboard on Microcenter for the $40 bundle discount. Seriously, load the CPU and a mobo into your cart and watch the price change magically. Right now you're overpaying for the mobo.
  2. You're overpaying for the PSU.
  3. Why are you buying a wired network adapter??? Should be on your mobo.
  4. Could save some cash with the cooler with CoolerMaster Hyper 212 EVO unless you are partial to the Noctua for some reason.
  5. $130 for a keyboard, and the same for a mouse? Are you freaking kidding me??
  6. Rams seem overpriced.
  7. 320GB HDD? WTF??
  8. ESD gloves? Are you kidding me? Do this right, buy a mat and strap like http://www.ebay.com/itm/Field-Service-Kits-from-Static-Control-Components/221471883855 ... and then ground it to the screw of a properly wired electrical outlet. Easiest way to verify proper grounding is to use a tester that also has a jack on it, such as http://www.all-spec.com/products/ets-256.html or http://www.all-spec.com/products/test_and_measurement%7Ctesters%7Cele-03/SP101.html ... or just buy http://www.all-spec.com/products/test_and_measurement%7Ctesters%7Cele-03/SP-102.html and install the PS in the case first, and keeping the PSU switch off put its power cord to the outlet. Anti static gloves will do little to nothing to keep your components safe.
  9. I think that is an overly expensive case.

It's a start, but lots of room for improvement.
