It looks ok to me, though you could get better performance for that price. Do you need hyper threading that much that you chose the xeon over the i5?

Corsair 450D>500r

This RAM is better: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/kingston-memory-hx316c10fbk28

This motherboard is more stable + ASRock has a pretty bad history in reliability: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/asus-motherboard-h97plus

Other than that everything is really good, if you do build this with that Xeon make sure to tell me how it is. I'm interested in it as well but I haven't seen anyone use it yet. Should be better than the 1230 v3 but by how much is what I don't know.

nah i just love the look of 500r :P + i can't buy it here: http://www.hardwareversand.de/home.jsp ... (where i'll buy my setup)

why is this ram better? it's cheaper-.-

I own the 500r, it looks great but it can kinda be a pain to build in. Just my thoughts on it.

And the price of something does not determine what is better, look at the 295x2 and the Titan Z for some clarification there. Also, it's cause Kingston makes very stable kits of RAM. Crucial makes good RAM too, but I don't see the reason to pay that much when Kingstons kit will do just the same for less.

It had its pains and it's good things. The side mesh makes dust go absolutely everywhere and front intake airflow is really poor. The airflow characteristics by the dust I've been getting show that the air is really one sided towards the motherboard, and my temps have been weird lately. It's a good case to build in but the airflow is really kinda bad. I like the case but I wouldn't recommend it. I wanna downsize to a 350D when I can.

The RAM isn't better, the kit he chose is CAS 9 where as the one you suggested is CAS 10
