Feedback on my final build + small question.

I would appriciate feedback regarding my complete build. I also was wondering If it would be a smart idea to recycle a few parts from my old OEM pc (an asus cm1610 or something) like the 4gbs or RAM to add to the 8gbs or the optical drive from it.

It's not a good idea to mix different types of RAM so just stick to what you are purchasing. Otherwise looks solid.
