The monitor is a placeholder, here's the actual monitor I'm buying:

Any suggestions pretty much must be less in budget. Does everything check out?
...I'm mostly unsure about the mobo. Also, I'd like a recommendation on an optical drive brand, I just picked one that costs the same as what I'll be buying.

Thanks for the suggestion, I'll keep it in mind. However, this is already pushing my budget...

I was mostly looking for any errors in the build that would prevent it from working.
(ie case too small for components, etc)

I've made some adaptations of my own and I'm now able to use the GPU you suggested.

Edit: Nvm, it's out of stock. Could anyone make a suggestions for a <200 dollar GPU? I'm thinking the 7850 2GB.

That's with the out of stock GPU, as a placeholder.

I changed the RAM. Also, at that price range I'd rather just go back to the one I started with...

What's wrong with the PSU? It's 80 Plus Bronze and it's on a nice rebate.
Edit: I won't be able to order within two days, so it'd be prudent to find a better one anyways.
