Very nice setup!
Do you have a specific reason why you purchase from Newegg.com on Ebay instead of their website?

Invest in a SSD drive for your Operating System and your boot/games will run even faster.

I got the parts from new egg not ebay. The e bay which I just noticed came from my cut and paste.
I'm booting from an SSD which is fast. I may put a stop watch on boot time.

Strange, the ebay store was newegg so I thought you purchased it all from ebay. I wonder if there is any benefit?

Good, glad you are using a SSD drive... mine is so fast!
