What are your work duties? I'd be willing to bet an i7 is overkill and consumes almost half your budget.

Do you have to buy everything from Microcenter?

Cheaper RAM.
G.SKILL Value 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-1600C11D-8GNT - Newegg.com

Better PSU.
SeaSonic SSR-450RM 450W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply - Newegg.com

The board is fine, but honestly I don't see the point in a Z97 board unless you want to go with an M.2 SSD, which in that case might as well get an ASRock with the Ultra M.2 slot. Otherwise, get a cheaper H81 board or even B85 board.
