Looks good, but i suggest you get a better psu and invest $7 more dollars for western digital or seagate drive. Other than that looks good, don't forget windows or arctic silver 5 thermal compound if needed.

For the money the MSI K8N Neo4 seems like a better buy than the DFI DAGF. If you have a few more dollars, going for a DFI Lanparty wouldnt be bad.

Suggestions for a PSU would be any brand name, Thermaltake, Antec, Forton, OCZ ect.

And for the hard drive, western digital or seagate is a better choice in most cases
