Rookie Computer Build, Suggetions?
Hey guys, so this is my first computer build. I'm not new to electronics or anything, this is just my first time building a computer. Any tips or critiques are greatly appreciated.

My goal is to have this computer last me for Atleast the next 15 years. I don't care about overclocking or crossfire. I just basically want to be able to play high end games such at LOL, Path of Exile, etc., with no problems. Budget is about $1150 (tax included.) I've compiled a list of parts and prices that I've found on new egg, and am confident with these choices, save the power supply; I think it needs work. Also, as far as an OS, I would -prefer- XP, but will settle for Win 7 or 8. I plan to use a solid state HD, though I haven't settled on the size. Heres the list:
