And for just 10 bucks more you can double your storage.

Other than that I think your good. If you want a CPU cooler I'd go with the Cooler Master 212 evo.

here would be a good build

+1, build has a lot of overclocking potential, while still having a lot of power stock.  If you do use a lot of single-threaded programs, then it may be a slightly different story.
