Everything looks good except I'd get a 990FX board instead and a FX 6300. Also the Xigmatek cooler should be replaced with a Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo and the CX 750 with a CX 500

Everything looks like it will work just fine. I'd opt for a higher quality PSU but as it is it will work. If you can wait a bit and save a little more, get a Gold/Platinum rated PSU.

IF possible I would recommend spending close to 1300 for a intel based system, with a Acer monitor. They usually have better response time and more ratings then BenQ. Also you could probably cut back on the case and OS. You could change the graphics card to a GTX 770 which is in the top 10 for graphic cards.Windows 8.1/8 in general is very annoying in general, and windows 7 is more reliable IMO.

Good luck on your build and i wish you the best
