Last minute changes to my $1.4K build.

Any small changes that could help me would be appricated.

-i5-3570K
-ASRock z77 extreme6
-Samsung 840 pro series 240GB SSD
-EVGA SuperClocked 660 TI 2GB
-Xigmatek Dark Night II CPU Cooler
-Corsair Vegence M60 gaming mouse
-CoolerMaster CM Storm quickfire TK mechanical gaming keyboard
-ASUS VG248QE 24" 144Hz 1ms
Total: $1,429.91 @Newegg.com
I do need a PSU but I'm actually not sure what a good one would be without breaking 1.5K
I was going to get a headset but put that money towards the monitor. I think everything is solid but I'd love some feedback. Will be ordering this all within this or next week.

With the money saved on that, get the seasonic 620w bronze power supply or similar. Don't get an offbrand power supply though.

And a mechanical hard drive wouldn't hurt.

@Posion I'm just fanboying. I don't like AMD that much and it looks cooler.

@Kang Dropping the mobo did help a lot actually. There isn't much blue on it either so it looks nice. With the PSU it's running me at $1,489.90 all from the Egg so I'm holdin off on more storage until later on.

Also, what would be a good, cheap-ish headset for me to look down on? Anything under $100 is great but I can save for anything more.
