Nice list of parts :thumbsup:

Missing from your list are a case, a DVD drive and an OS such as Windows 7, do you already have these.

As an asides, if your budget will allow it I would suggest swapping the 3TB HDD for a 120 - 128GB SSD for the OS/faster boot times and quicker access to your favourite games + 1 or 2 1TB HDDs for now, 3TB of data is an awful lot to lose if the HDD failed and to keep backed up all of the time, purchasing additional 1TB HDDs in the future as you need them is more practical and is a way of keeping your data backed up to another source.
