Hi, i've posted before but that was to get started on my very first budget build, but now I have managed to increase my budget to $1800 which I split into 2 the $1300 main budget for the case and components, and $500 side budget for the monitor, keyboard, operating system etc. I tried my hand at putting a list of parts together to build a LAN gaming rig and was wondering if you could give me some tips

here is main budget of $1300:

I'd go with that corsair PSU, 750W is plenty, far more than you'll need and has a good warranty and high quality components. I'd also consider a beefy CPU cooler, that masscool looks no better than the stock intel cooler.

That Xigmatek will do a much better job and if you plan on overclocking your i7, you wont have a problem.
