Are you planing to overclock on that motherboard? If so, then the Asrock mobos isnt the best ones for that purpose. Id choose an Asus, Gigabyte or even a msi board instead.

Cpu, ram, hdd is all good.

I would change the psu to a better quality one. Corsair, enermax, Seasonic make good psu's. If you can afford a Corsair AX750-850w that would be awesome. You can run sli/x-fire later on and the psu is also fully modular, gold certified and comes with 7 years warranty. Corsair also sell braided cable kits in different colours for the hole AX series :-)

I saw this OCZ750w Then you are ready for sli/xfire later on.

The cpu cooler/optical i have no experience with.

Case is ok, but i would have chosen the Define R3 if i wanted a fractal case. You can get that in white, black and titanium and cost only around 15-20£ more.

Heres a few motherboards you could check out: Asus sabertooth, pro z68 gen3. Gigabyte Z68X-UD3H-B3, GA-Z68XP-UD4 and MSI Z68A-GD65 (Gen3)

Thanks. I'll go with Asus PRO GEN3 Z68 than, but I'm sticking with current PSU since simply I can't afford better. Don't really care if it's modular or not (for now).

Was told I don't really need more than 500W PSU since I don't plan running SLI.

Corsair, Antech, Mushkin, Ultra LSP series PSUs, Silverstone, Enermax, Thermaltake, OCZ. Just to name a few of the better brands.

Honestly I think Corsair is the best of the lot.

Seasonic is the OEM for the better Corsair PSU's so Seasonic is the best out of the lot. BeQuiet is another good brand you could consider as I have one of their 80+ gold rated PSUs and it has been running perfectly for about 8 months now
