My System Specs


Ok.. If you don't game much you can get a cheaper gpu 660ti should be plenty.
The motherboard is also a bit on the expensive side for your needs, $150 board will be plenty.
an i5 3570k will be enough for your usage (at least it would for me with the use you listed)
The i7 only really comes into it's own with more apps or rendering etc. You will see a bit of difference but $100 worth? Your shout.
H40 not worth it. Hyper212 is good and cheap
I would double the ssd, You will find that 120gb will fill quickly.
No psu listed?
Personally, seagate with 1yr warranty on their hdds is not what I would use for important data. Wd blue would be my choice at the minimum.
