The rest of it should be fine, though I also tend to feel that Asus makes a better product than their sister company ASRock and would recommend the ASUS P8P67 PRO which is the same board, but typically comes with better components in my experience.
ASRock is no longer a sub company of Asus. Asus hasnt been the parent company for a few years now actually. The PSU is actually a really good unit.

I suggest a WD over the F3. Warranty, Customer Service, Reliability with the WD drives just seem much better. I've seen a lot of people reporting DOA, etc with the F3's lately.

Rosewill PSUs have issues. I wouldn't trust one. Any Corsair PSU is great. They may be a little more money, but it's completely worth it.

No reason to fear ASRock anymore. Now that ASUS isn't holding them down and forcing them to be a Foxconn wannabe, they've come out with some of the best boards on the market. They are on top of their game and duking it out with the likes of MSI, Gigabyte, and even ASUS themselves.

Pretty good choices. Have you considered getting a SSD for an OS drive?

1st rule of PC building, never cheap out on the PSU. It will bite you in the ass sooner or later.

I like how you guys are all ripping on the Rosewill PSU when you have absolutely no proof as to how the new FIVE series are bad. If you are going to rate it down without even researching into it, get off please.

I am going to be purchasing the same PSU soon. So if someone can actually provide links instead of "because I know so", that would be appreciated.
