Your parts list is good exept for the PSU which is only a entry level one.   All other parts should be chosen, then the PSU wattage calculated and a better quality one selected.


Using an aftermarket cooler, a very important thing I must make you aware of is that you do not need the additional heatsink and CPU fan, the stock one does a good job,  and if you did use it you would void your CPU warranty, Intel are clear on this, see below;


Intel, "damage to the Product due to external causes, including accident, problems with electrical power, abnormal electrical, mechanical or environmental conditions, usage not in accordance with product instructions, misuse, neglect, alteration, repair, improper installation, or improper testing;"

Depending on what will be the main usage of the build, we may be able to help you further.

Is the rig for gaming, general use or for heavy application used for photo/video editing?

What is your budget?

In which country will you purchase parts?

What OS will you install and do you already own it, retail or OEM version?
