Pretty good build but that memory isn't even 1600mhz and it'll bottleneck your whole system. Go with this memory http://www.amazon.co.uk/HyperX-Series-1866MHz-Memory-Module/dp/B00J8E90I2/ref=sr_1_2?s=computers&ie=UTF8&qid=1407927672&sr=1-2&keywords=hyperx+fury Low profile, looks nicer, and it's black and will match better with the case/build. Other than that, welcome to team red :)
