Looking good, only little detail I'd mention is the colours; white case, blue mobo, red memory. Maybe spend an extra couple of bucks on the blue version of that memory http://ca.pcpartpicker.com/part/gskill-memory-f312800cl7d8gbxm

The video card has red too, but that seems subtle so can get away with it.

Oh that's true, I hadn't even thought of that. I'll switch it up, thank you!

I honestly already bought the case, but not the motherboard.

Know any cost-efficient motherboards I could use?
