i5 4690K is $4 cheaper, and it's unlocked, so you can overclock it in the future. Go with it.

I hope you know your RAM will NOT fit the color of your build. Not something I would worry about if you didn't have a side panel. Check out some G.Skill RAM, but remember, the lower the CAS, the faster the RAM. I would recommend 9 or lower.

WiFi PCI card will be slower than a straight Ethernet connection to you router. If you can do that, please do.

Other than that, this looks like a nice PC.

If you don't want to overclock for some odd reason, go with the xeon, its basically a i7 thats locked with some server features. I got matching ram also.
