need an opinion on a programming work build

Hello to everyone, I would like to have your opinion on my specs,
usage – I'm a CS student so it will be mainly for programming, running virtual machine (linux/ubuntu through virtual box), watching 1080p videos on 24" screen , multi-tasking (being able to work with a lot of websites tabs opened and few programs running simultaneously including virtual machine). I'm planning to run any games on this pc.

Intel Kaby Lake Core i5 7600 3.5Ghz 6MB cache s1151 – Tray
Arctic Cooling Alpine 11 Rev2 CPU Cooler Socket 775/1156/1155
Gigabyte GA-B150M-DS3H LGA1151 DDR4 VGA DVI HDMI MICRO ATX
Corsair 16GB (2x8GB) DDR4 2133MHz CL13 - Black - Vengeance LPX
Western Digital Caviar Blue 2TB 64MB Sata III WD20EZRZ
Samsung 750 EVO Series MZ-750120BW 120GB SSD SATA III
Corsair Carbide 200R Case
Corsair VS450 450W 80PLUS 12cm Fan

Some questions please:
1. Are the ssd and hdd drivers are OK?
2. Is the case fit the motherboard? Mb is micro atx so I dunno.
3. Psu Is enough for this system, right?

Tanks guys!

  1. Best answer
    Would probably use more cores and a proper Quadro for some Mosaic action if you're doing programming. For SSDs, Samsung almost always suck for the price. Should get the MX300. Otherwise, looks fine.

    This would be better though.

  2. Those specs are fine.
    I have an i5 7400 and only 8GB of RAM and it's doing just fine.
    My largest project has over 1000 .cs files in it.

    Just double check that your processor supports hyper-v. That's critical.
  3. Thank you very much for your help
