All great except for the CPU and storage. I might be an intel fanboy, but I highly recommend an i3 or i5 over an FX. It seems you have already purchased those Seagate Breakacudas, so if they ever fail, buy a Western Digital instead of one of those.

Alright, everyone has their preference. I've probably just had bad luck with Seagate.

The only issue I see is the 1333 ram and you already bought it but that always be overclocked but other than that it looks decent
