not to be a smart ass, but just to point out, you said you dont want to overclock, but you picked a chip that comes overclocked. theres nothing to worry about. overclocking is getting more mainstream all the time becuase you can get great results for little risk and effort, theres no reason not to. at all.
 
picking a 960 has you paying $300 to intel for 400 ghz gain, when you could get 800 ghz gain free from DSO, and have it covered under warranty. so use the money you save to extend your warranty
 
so drop to a 930, add the free overclock, if you want it to be mild, tell ds to keep it under to 3.6. that will give you performance with a small increase in temps
 
other than that youre looking pretty good. the case is pretty overkill for what youre building, but if you like it, get it. i always suggest the 932, but im a fanboy of that case, so ill suggest it even when its more than you need
