This is my first complete build. I've changed graphics cards, RAM, etc. but never actually built a whole computer myself. I don't want any unforeseen problems when I am assembling it... any feedback would be awesome! I've read a lot of the guides on the forum and have learned quite a bit, I just want to make sure everything will work before ordering! Thanks in advance!

Overclocking: Maybe in the future when I learn how to do it but not initially

Additional Comments: It needs to light up like a Christmas tree

I think I'll stick with newegg just so I have all the parts coming in from them, the prices were really close maybe just a $15 or $20 difference total.
I've never heard of Raidmax....are they reliable and well built? I only picked the enermax because one of the guides on here suggested it...
i read a article on here stating all of the psu brands tomshardware trusts raidmax was one of them but only certain units. im pretty sure this would be one of the units since on newegg no one has had problems with it and it is gold rated
