Everything looks good. IMO, I think its worth upgrading to the G850 for $17 more.

I would also consider upgrading to the G850 as ichigeki suggested.

I would change the Corsair Builder Series CMPSU-430CXV2, which is quite unreliable, by the http://ncix.ca/products/?sku=59271&vpn=N...omoid=1311 which costs slightly less and is more reliable.

Alternatively, the http://ncix.ca/products/?sku=63238&vpn=P...acture=XFX is a tad more expensive, but you can save $20 with a mail-in rebate.

Hard drive: For the same price, the http://ncix.ca/products/?sku=63468&vpn=S...re=Seagate offers higher performance and better reliability.

Other than that, you're good to go.
