Hey guys!

You were so helpful the first time around, I made some changes and thought we'd try this again and see if this works. To preface this, I'm building this for my wife and I to be reliable, upgradeable as the years go by, inexpensive, and yet be able to effectively run programs only as intense as Adobe After Effects CS6. With this in mind, this is what I've come up with:

Case: ThermalTake VN700M1W2N Overseer
OS: Windows 8 64-bit
MOBO: ASUS P8H77-V LE
PSU: CORSAIR Builder Series CX430 430W
CPU: Intel Core i5-3470 Ivy Bridge 3.2GHz
RAM: 8 GB Corsair CMX8GX3M1A1333C9 XMS3
HDD: WD Blue WD10EZEX 1TB
Optical: Asus DRW-24B1ST
Multi-Card Reader: Sabrent CRW-UINB 7-Slot
Wireless Card: TP-Link TL-WN781ND

The only thing I'm actually concerned about is the case. Seems good enough though?

Thanks in advance!

- edit: updated case to full-tower and the PSU to save money -

The only thing about some mid-tower cases is they are awfully cramped it work in, when it comes upgrade time..YMMV

Thanks, I think I found a good full-tower case now; would you agree?

If you have the room for a full tower, that is the way to go for upgrades.
