If you're not overclocking, the 650W PSU might not be necessary, as well as the Z97 motherboard, although I will not deny they look freaking epic. Your RAM has CAS latency of 10, which is not necessarily bad, but for $1-5 more, you could get a CAS of 9, which is faster. The only other thing is that you have chosen a Wi-Fi PCI Card. Yes, they are very convenient, however an Ethernet connection is MUCH faster, so if you are able to run a cable to where your computer will be, do it, but if not that should work fine for you. The monitor is nice for your budget, but it is 60Hz, which is about 60fps. Most things are not more than 60fps, however if you want a REALLY good gaming experience, I would try to get a 120Hz monitor, although they are more expensive. Other than that, you chose some really nice components that won't bottleneck, and are reputable brands.

Okay, thanks man! I'll change the RAM tonight and try find a better monitor but i dont really have the money for a 120Hz monitor right now. Thanks for all your help, will be ordering this all tonight.

Considering you are overclocking get something like 212 EVO to put extra gigahertzes, if not the above comment is really useful.
