Caviar Blue Caviar Black :) 

I'd get an XFX PSU instead of that Rosewill as well.

The rest looks pretty good to me :)

Caviar Black is made with higher quality components, has a longer warranty and is a lot faster than the Caviar Blue (maybe up to 20% faster?). Definitely worth the 30$ extra imo.

And yep, that's the exact PSU that I would've suggested :)

Awesome!

Are there any better looking cases out there for around the same price as the one i listed? I really like the NZXT mid towers but Idk how good they are with cable management and airflow and such

The "advanced" version comes with 2 in the front and 1 in the back :) 

The "standard" version only comes with 1 in the back.

So, make sure you get the "advanced" one :D
