    Looks good! One thing worth considering... while I've never had any problems with them myself, Seagate has caught some flak recently for hard drive failures. I might swap that one out for either a Western Digital Blue SSHD or a WD Black.

    My personal taste would be to go for an Asus Mobo but it looks really good otherwise.

    Edit: Also for the case you can go cheaper if you're getting a mid sized case $50-60.

    Do they have the same case but smaller?

    Depends though. Corsair cases are really well designed, so building with them tends to be a pleasant experience. But then again, if someone else is doing the build...

    Also with the case if you look down on the new egg listing it had photos of all the neat wire hide a ways to keep it real tight and organized

    My last build had a Seagate hard drive and I never had an issue with it. However that was a few years ago so I can't comment on recent hard drives. I also prefer more wattage on the PSU but not sure it's needed. That's my only two cents. I think it looks good :)

    Yeah (NVidia) GPUs have gotten really power efficient these days, but I'm of the opinion that a PSU will perform better and last longer if you aren't running it at 90% capacity. Something in the 800W range seems preferable if you don't mind the extra $20 or whatever.

    I don't see anywhere what the max refresh rate is on that monitor, though the 1ms is nice. The reviews I see online basically boil down to "it's not an IPS display, so color accuracy isn't great and neither is the viewing angle." So overall not bad, given the caveats.

    If you're willing to pay for it, here's the G-Sync monitor I have:

    AOC G2460PG 24" G-SYNC 3D-Ready Ultimate Performance Gaming Monitor

    The Free-Sync monitor would be a waste if you don't have an AMD card. It's hard not to recommend an IPS; they are amazing and something you can't appreciate until you see it in person.
