Everything looks good except your power supply I’d get a 750w and just as a option get a SSD for your OS and get windows 7

And for about $ 30 more get the i5 2500k for gaming

    You have two power supplies listed. the Corsair 600W is large enough. Drop the Cooler Master 450W.

    If you can swing the Western Digital Black, it’s worth it for the performance increase. Better yet, get an SSD.

    I’d highly recommend an aftermarket cooler. Gaming tends to heat up the CPU for long periods of time. Something like this one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835103099&nm_mc=AFC-C8Junction&cm_sp=&AID=10446076&PID=3938566&SID=

    What does PC Parts Picker say? Let’s see: Didn’t have the GA-Z77X-UD4H, so I went with the GA-Z77X-UD5H. Subtract $ 17 to get the UD4H price. Added a CPU Cooler, the Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO, and went for a Caviar Black instead of a Blue.

    PC Parts Picker notes that although the motherboard has USB 3.0 headers, the Antec Three Hundred Illusion case does not have front panel USB 3.0 ports.

    Now, if you live within driving distance of a Microcenter:

    One power supply. Boost it up to about 900w or more just in case you add to the machine later. Like dual vid cards in sli. Maybe some lights to pump up the look.
