Looking at your build, I don't understand why people go with the Samsung 840 EVO. The Crucial M500 has a better NAND and is cheaper. PSU is overkill, any decent 550w should do, such as the XFX or an Rosewill Capstone. RAM seems to be more expensive than it needs to be, http://pcpartpicker.com/part/gskill-memory-f31600c9d8gao is fine.
I have no idea why am I going Z87, should I go Z97? What MoBo would you suggest?
Also, might seem counter intuitive but I would prefer if the motherboard had integrated WiFi, wiring in my house is a total mess and it's almost impossible to use ethernet in the room I'll have the computer, of course I could get a WiFi PCi card or a router (though I think that's a bit much).
I've gone with te Samsung 840 EVO 'cause the reviews tend to favour that one instead of the Crucial M5000: http://ssd.userbenchmark.com/Compare/Samsung-840-Evo-250GB-vs-Crucial-M500-240GB/1594vs1551
I'll consider changing the PSU, it does seem a little bit over the top.
The reason I chose Corsair's Vengeance for RAM it's because it needs to be from amazon otherwise the shipping costs would be ludicrous, that G.Skill RAM costs more on Amazon.
