It all looks good Only thing I'd add is an SSD for a boot drive. And if you don't need it, drop 7 Pro for 7 Home Premium.

Ill consider that option with changing to home premium. I need to compare em both. I'd like an ssd, but it maybe too pricy atm.

Actually, they're coming down in price. Free-falling, really. You can have a 128GB for around $100.

Newegg.com - SAMSUNG 830 Series MZ-7PC128B/WW 2.5" 128GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

OS is practically the same minus some features you will probably never use.
