Seconding what Jet said about the PSU (if you want modular go for either Seasonic or Corsair HX/AX), but not necessarily the thermal paste. I recall reading the bundled in stuff wasn't all that great, and $5-15 more for a higher quality tube's a fairly small price to pay. The Hyper 212+ IS cheaper on Amazon by the way, and while I don't know how good that Noctua stuff is I know Arctic Cooling MX-4 is really good and not electrically conductive, making safer to use if you mess up than something like Arctic Silver 5.
Also I did have an eVGA card go bad on me years ago, but that may've just been a rough period (apparently some bootleg capacitors got mixed in with the real deal?) and I know MSI's pretty reliable. Probably not a big deal though.
