Get the i5 4440 instead so you don't have a possible DOA system (motherboard would require immediate bios update).

That PSU is a fire hazard waiting to happen.

The GPU is a good deal if you can buy it for 200 right now.

The SSD is terrible and the H87 chipset is rather pointless.

Because cheap high wattage PSUs (especially no name brands) are mismarked and made with crap components. No different than buying Apevia or Raidmax. Give it any kind of real load and it'll go pop fizzle and burn. I talk about this in my guide thread.

The SSD has lower IOPS than my first gen G.Skill I got in 2008.

PP is the pro on hardware but this is what I would recommend, A little more but both are the top brands for the PS and the SSD
SeaSonic S12II 620 Bronze 620W ATX12V V2.3 / EPS 12V V2.91 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply - Newegg.com
SSD Samsung are making really good ones and highly recomended. I have one myself.
Newegg.com - SAMSUNG 840 EVO MZ-7TE120BW 2.5" 120GB SATA III TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
