Change your CPU for http://www.newegg.co...N82E16819115072 the difference in speed is minimal but the integrated graphics more than compensate for this and it is $10 less expensive and this can be better spent elsewhere.
You do not need http://www.newegg.co...N82E16835103065 and if you did use it you would void your CPU warranty, Intel are clear on this;
Again the money saved can be better spent elsewhere.

Change http://www.newegg.co...N82E16820148441 for http://www.newegg.co...N82E16820226236 or http://www.newegg.co...N82E16820148448 as this will allow for many Windows 7 and other important updates for years to come.
http://www.newegg.co...N82E16899261002 and http://www.newegg.co...N82E16899888207 are not necessary, all you will require is a small electrical Phillips and possibly a small flat type electrical screwdriver, touching a bare metal part of the case while you are working is sufficient grounding and again the cash saved can be used on something worthwhile such as the larger capacity SSD.
NB: Don`t forget to purchase a good quality thermal paste such as Arctic Silver 5 http://www.geekstogo...rface-material/
I use a kit like the one in the .jpeg below;

Good to see you have chosen a PSU with a single 12V rail ( a very good price as well )
Are you aware that there is no actual thermal paste in the selected Arctic Silver kit and that it is sold separately, check local suppliers or ebay to see if you can obtain the 3 in 1 kit and reduce costs.

NB: Did you have any luck with the 3 in 1 Arctic Silver 5 kit?
I get mine off ebay here in the UK http://www.ebay.co.u...=item27b6f2bc14 equivalent to $19.39

I'm guessing that is the same product as the one you listed.
