Just because it got good reviews on Newegg doesn't make it good - HEC is a brand that's notorious for producing a lot of junk, like Raidmax, Apevia, Xion, and Xclio. The problem with Newegg is that most of the people who post reviews typically aren't experts - you do not want to get your product advice from a store, I can't stress that enough. If you want a build like this you're not going to obtain a lot of the things you want without cutting corners on your budget and that's something I never recommend doing - especially on the PSU and that's one of the most important things on the build. If you get a junk brand it's likely to blow up in your face and there goes your build. I've had that happen before so I'm speaking from experience.
