Double checking on the layout. Let me know whatcha think

Just wanted to double check on this system I have laid out to buy parts and build for. I just wanted to make sure that everything is compatable with each other and that it looked clean. It fits my budget quite nicely, and if there is any suggestions to make it better, please feel free to post. Im hoping this will be able to play my CSS and possibly other games at great graphics. Im hoping that the PSU isnt pushing too much wattage out for the system or just too much in general. This is my first time building, and looking forward to it. Thanks in advance for the help.

    Looks good, PSU is good....don't worry about too much power. I would spend a little more on the video card, 6800XT isn't a very good card. Maybe a 7600GS... same price after rebate:

  2. Everything looks fine. IMO I would look for a different case. I like thermal take cases and lian li cases. If you want more options with a similar look check out Xoxide they sometimes have some pretty good deals on cases, fans , and other odds and ends. Again that is just my opinion you don't have to follow it.
  3. That Xoxide case looks pretty sweet. Thats an ATX-Mid tower that would work with my motherboard? And, about the two front blue bubble light sticks, do those come stock. There actually kinda neat. It looks like a better deal case than the POWMAX case I orignally selected.
  4. get an x850xt for 15$ more. it will smack either proposed cards. search newegg im pretty sure they have one for like 115$.
  5. Yes the lights come that way the way the pictures look on there is the way they come. I built my first computer in an X-Purity casei still have it at home running as a server. Just watch the site they normally have some pretty good sales.
