I was wondering if there is any last minute changes I need to make. This is very important as I am ordering my parts later today. If you think this build is perfect then say so.

You should get a bigger monitor(like Acer G246HLAbd or Asus VS238H-P or ...) and a better mobo(like the 970A-UD3P), because this one has no VRM cooling.

I'd like to have a 21.5" Monitor so I will keep this one.
