I have a copy of Windows 8 Pro on hand, as well as a 1TB HDD.

I was also thinking of holding off buying the GPU until AMD releases their next series of cards on the market. I currently have a GTX 750 Ti. Thoughts?

Your build is almost identical to my proposed one. Good choice on the 2x4Gb if you have enough to i did find some 2133mhz for ~$85 CAD

Wow, that's some good value on that RAM. I still am leaning towards the Kingston White because - to me - it looks absolutely gorgeous. I'll definitely consider your suggestion though!
