Mostly looking to get opinions on the parts compatibility/synergy more than recommendations on upgrades but I'd appreciate those too. Almost positive the parts are compatible, checked myself and according to the system build there were no compatibility issues but I don't know how accurate that is, but if you could see for yourself it would really reassure me heres a link: http://pcpartpicker.com/b/V6m8TW heres the pieces from the export:

Your power supply is pretty overkill, but if you want to upgrade in the future you should get it.
