Everything looks pretty good to me, looks like you got your bases covered.

The only thing is, I personally don't care for micro atx motherboards, they have less pci slots. Doesn't mean anything if you don't have any pci devices, but if you wanted to add things, you may run out of pci slots. Your case will support a regular ATX motherboard.

Thanks. Just wanted an overview from someone else. And btw, he just wanted a basic gaming computer that he could play most games on. He doesn't want any extra cards really.
