looks good, i would either get the 1090t or even the 965 x4 since they have higher clock speeds, up to you though i guess, still i would be happy to have it

great build, tho i would put aside another 100$ for taking the 1090t, upgrading from haf912 to haf922 (or even 932 if affordable), and most importantly get an aftermarket cpu cooler, even the hyper 212+ would be a big improvement. it might be 10% more for your budget but thse improvements will make a big difference on your system temps, which would in turn lead to better overall system health (longer lifetime of parts)

STOP. DO NOT GET THAT RAM.
The particular Corsair kit is rated 1333 9-9-9 (generic is bad)... 1.65V. You do not need 1.65V to run generic timings whatsoever; you are asking for bad performance. Your overclockability will be severely limtied, all IC's on performance or generic memory should be able to run 1066 7-7-7 and/or 1333 9-9-9 1.5V as a minimum standard, with the 1.65V requirement you probably have very low-binned, half-faulty IC's in that memory. The performance to begin with isn't good either, you want to lower timings or get higher speed for AMD to get the best out of your system.

In addition, you've got a big budget and are getting the top-tier AMD processor; you are pairing it with low-end generic memory used in prebuilts. You've got a custom-built system, better performance memory can often be had for better prices even. Otherwise, really, spend the money; you have a choice. This isn't a prebuilt.

For example, the G.Skill Ripjaws 1600 9-9-9 1.5V kit probably sells at a better price; it goes for $100 on Newegg after promo code - $90 after using another promo code (FBXMAS10) for $10 off. 1600 9-9-9 is about equal to 1333 7-7-7.

Going by the graphics on your picture it looks like you're shopping at TigerDirect. Limit your shopping there, they have a very bad memory selection among other things.
