Monitor - 25ms is way to slow for gaming (get a 8 or 4)

I've never heard of that memory manufacture

Give a link for your PSU, it may be ATX 1.2 - you need ATX 2.0
So you may need a converter for it.

I would change everything on your list except for the processor and the operating system.

PSU's that come with with cases die VERY quickly.. and 25 ms monitor for gaming? no way!... SOME people say they use a 12ms monitor with no ghosting but i would go with 8
