Default First mini itx build, your thoughts much appreciated!

Hello all, so I haven't built a computer in about 8 years because I`ve been a laptop kinda guy since but I'm looking to build a mini itx gamer to play games like Guildwars 2 and Diablo 3 so I don't think I need to spend too much or need anything super crazy! I'm not very knowledgeable when it comes to computer parts anymore but I've been doing some research for the past couple of weeks and here's what I came up with. Let me know what you all think and if you can suggest any part swaps.

Thank you in advance for reading and any input!
