You're missing a hard drive. Otherwise the build looks good. The only other "gotcha" you should check out before you purchase are the dimensions of the optical drive and the power supply. The case is less than 13 1/2" deep. The power supply (with power cables) will likely take up about 7 1/2". That only leaves about 6" for your optical drive and it's SATA/Power cables. Make sure you have enough room for both.
