An ethernet cable would have to be quite long to get to where I'll be and powerline is kinda expensive :/

Looks good to me.

 

If you're planning on overclocking the CPU, get an AIO cooler or a Noctua air cooler. I would swap out the Gigabyte board for an MSI one as MSI offers you the ability to set an adaptive voltage for your Vring and Cache Frequency whereas Gigabyte does not.

Why a 4690K w/o an aftermarket cooler? Might as well save some money there if you don't plan to OC anytime soon.

I plan on getting an aftermarket cooler later. I couldn't get it in the budget right now though.

PSU is no bueno. Change to a Supernova G2, XFX, or Seasonic unit. Also change the Barracuda drive for a Western Digital drive.

PSU es no bueno? Por que?

it is a supernova, and 650W if enough. a WD or seagate drive is better than barracuda anyday.

they sell really long cables. ethernet doesnt need a powerline

It is built by FSP, a pretty bad name in PSUs. Do as I say.

 

 

Está construido por FSP , una muy mala fama en PSU . Haz lo que digo.

Not a good Supernova. The only good Supernovas are the G2 and P2, Super Flower built units.
