Looks good but change the hard drive to a 1 tb caviar black also a 21.5 inch or bigger monitor would be better 

Yeah, go for at least 500GB. The price per gigabyte on mechanical drives are like 7 cents nowadays. RAM is also ridicoulusly cheap, so you can ramp up to 12 or 16 if you're gonna render or do some heavy duty multitasking. 

The water cooler tells me that you will be doing some overclocking. The PSU might be a bit too puny for "water cooling level overclocks". The i5 2500k is stupid fast regardless, so maybe invest in a cheaper air cooler and spend the extra money on a bigger PSU?

1TB on hard drive is cheap, 16GB of ram atm is STUPID cheap and water cooler id go for just a good after market heatsink and fan.
(links will be british amazon as i am a brit sorry :D) but prices are similar.

1TB hard drive so cheap




same cooler as i have never go above 55 degrees with my i5 2500k running at 4.5GHz

thats my 2 pence (british!!!)
