This will be my first build for gaming and I was interested in using black and blue parts. Any feedback or suggestions would be appreciated.

Solid system and great if you plan to OC. Just made couple of minor changes without affecting your price much. Changed to better PSU and one that is full-modular (Seasonic makes PSU for Corsair and others). Secondly, changed your RAM to higher frequency and kept your color scheme and at same price.

If you do plan on Overclocking, get a better cpu cooler than stock one that comes with CPU.

I agree, I swear by Seasonic. In 10 years I've owned 2 Seasonic PSU's never needed to replace them.
