If your choosing the outdated parts because you already have some of them, then your build is pretty good, but if you don't I have an updated list here.

Go with the newer i7 -4000 series because they will offer more compatibility and power.

I bumped you up to quad channel memory and hex core CPU.

I switched your PSU out with a better brand because Seasonic isn't that reliable.

I also changed your sound card to the top brand on the market.
