You might save some money on that power supply. If you are not going to overclock or SLI you really draw only about 250W with everything going full-tilt, so as low as a good 350W supply should do you good. I would look in the 450 -550 range.

Looks good but don't forget to combine a small ssd say 128gb and you spinner, you'll thank me later. Set the ssd up with your clean install and all the software and games that will fit and the less played games and data on your spinner.

I was planning on SSD but I heard they don't last as long as HDD, so I kinda left it out plus it went over my budget..

Look to get a quality unit from Samsung, Crucial, Intel, Corsair. I've been using a Samsung 830 in one rig and a 840 Pro in another....flawless, the rest have been Crucial and out of seven purchased so far not one failure and if anything I think these will out last a spinner two to one at lease.
