    Switch from the i3 2120 to the i3 3220
    it's a newer architecture, same price, and slightly more powerful.
    If you don't plan on overclocking, go with a H77 MATX board instead.
    like this one.
    Also, that GPU isn't really justifiable at that price point.
    This GTX 650 would be a much better contender, for ~ $30 cheaper.

    Apart from that it looks good. What are you planning on using the computer for?

    I agree with xcylent's suggestions, other than that they're a good choice of components.

    Thanks for your observation. I'll be making some changes to my list.

    I plan on using it for occasional gaming (League or legends and Diablo 3) but I do intend to try more games with it. I mostly use it for FL Studio, watching movies, and playing poker. (Everyday use)
