Thoughts/recommendations on my build

Hey I am doing my first build and want to know your thoughts and/or recommendations on this build.
My budget can go up to $1100 if needed. Don't need OS or Optical drive because I have already and since I'm not overclocking I didn't add a cpu cooler because thinking that stock cooling may be enough.

Thanks for any suggestions.

Edited your build only with a larger SSD. They are getting alot cheaper and you almost can always double the capacity for bit a more.

you didn't post a hdd so i added one. if you already have one, you can upgrade the mobo and gpu

What would you do? Would you taint your hands with evil to destroy evil? Or would you carry out your own justice and succumb to that evil?

Get the 'k' version of the cpu. Most people, doing their first build, think they won't want to overclock. Most people change their mind later. You wouldn't have to get a new cooler now, obviously.

You can probably get the MSI G45 Gaming or the GTX 770 with the money you save. Or both depending on the model you get for the GPU. Alternatively, you can also get the Samsung 840 EVOs. Just do any combination of the upgrades I mentioned
