I like this build, however I curious as to why you have opted for a Z87 board with the current flurry of Z97 boards coming to market, they are compatible with with the LGA 1150 socket.Not only do the have improved features but the will allow greater upgradability with the upcoming Devil's canyon cpu release, for exsample this board http://www.amazon.com/MSI-DDR3-2600-Motherboards-GAMING/dp/B00K23BZVI/ref=sr_1_1?s=pc&ie=UTF8&qid=1402764810&sr=1-1&keywords=z97 ($159.99) and it's only $20 more.you could possibly find this cheaper on other US sites as I only checked amazon. plus the addition of the M.2 onboard sata port will give you the perfect place to store a boot drive with transfer speeds of up to 520MB/s read and 330MB/s write.

this is just my opinion tho, honestly you have picked a good build :)

If you are unsure about building it yourself there are guides all over youtube that will show all you need to know such as this video from Linus Tech Tips,altho he does not use the same items as you the principle is still the same.

I had both, and YES. The intel is far better.
