Looks very nice overall, you can save a few bucks here and there tho -

You don't need the sound card (built into mobo), extra fans (3 included with case) and you prolly don't need 802.11a. PSU wattage is prolly a little overkill too, 650w would be ok if you don't have plans for multi gpu down the road.

Full tower cases are a little large for single setups imo, but that's down to your taste at the end of the day.
