I think I am ready to order now. I got great advice from gkay09, and changed a few items to meet my preferences. Can you guys please check to see if they are all compatible and reliable? Also, please comment on any item that I need to downgrade or upgrade
This will be my first build

ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: I wanted a case without all those neon lights, and specifically Antec 300. Also, I want a computer that is rather quite and can be connected to my HDTV so I can watch stuff on my TV.
jeroly, Keyboard is one item that I want to buy after seeing in person, so I left it off the list intentionally. Also, this is my first build, and I am not sure if I want to risk overclocking it or not...which RAM do you recommend for DDR3 1600? Finally, I will look into some SSDs to see how much they are
Davcon, thanks for the links. Out of all those PSUs, which one do you recommend? PSU is the one area where I really don't know what I want.
