The price on the mobo is brutally inaccurate. I'l reallocate those extra funds to a bigger SSD or a better cooling system for a nice OC

probably because it's a combo with the CPU since the CPU is at $0.

also, get a good power supply please. Something like a 550W EVGA G2

That PSU you picked is very cheap for a reason and that reason is its group regulated which means its not very good
Why you should not buy an EVGA 400-600 and 500B-600B

The Corsair CX550 is not only better its also cheaper if you use a rebate card from newegg
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139147&cm_re=CX550-_-17-139-147-_-Product

But even a Corsair CX550 is being cheap and a Corsair RMx an EVGA SuperNova G2 or an XFX XTR would be an much better option

The CPU cooler you picked is not all that good either its old not very quiet and its overrated

You can get a Cryorig H7 for for only $5 more then a 212 Evo and that one is a newer better and more quiet cooler

RAM speed has been shown to help gaming performance so I would recommend getting a slightly faster kit. This is a 3000 MHz kit for $76. If the price difference is too much, you can stick with the kit you've picked out and attempt overclocking it.

For your CPU cooler, I really like recommending the Phanteks PH-TC12DX. It's only $50 and comes with two PWM fans for a push-pull configuration out of the box. The included thermal paste is also really good.

If you need to save money now, you could get a cheaper keyboard and mouse as placeholders. And if time isn't a factor, you could wait for sales. Newegg has sales all the time.

You should be aware that the Phanteks Enthoo Pro M case you picked only comes with a single 140mm fan in the back
If you want to have more fans you are going to have to buy some stand alone

I think its this fan the comes comes with

Phanteks included very little with the Enthoo Pro M to keep the price down.
