Everything looks nice, I would just suggest you get 2 x 4GB sticks of Ram instead of 1 8GB. It increases the performance being separated.

Yep, Always pair memory, Also I7 is really not needed for gaming an I5 is efficient especially with a good cooler for OC if desired. Here is what I came up with instead.
