Please give this a look see and let me know if I have made any mistakes..... this will be my first build.... little nervous.

Mostly interested in if something won't work or not fit. But if there is something that will save me money or is much better and not much more expensive, speak up. Thanks!

Why did you stop at $1289? Your only at 10% of your budget, keep going.

orders from ncix take alot longer if your going with them for the free shipping, its better to just pay for the shipping and get all your parts together. imo

Woops about the 13K, I mean 1.3K..... forgot the decimal..... fixed it, so we will just pretend it never happened.

Thanks about the heads up about NCIX, I plan on buying mostly everything on New Egg and at Micro Center though, just didnt update the build prices.

I think everything should be fine, but any help to double check would be great.

I can't get behind a 64 GB SSD; had too many peeps bring them back w/ requests to clean out cause they ran outta room. If ya can't stretch the budget, I'd recommend a hybrid SSD/HD solution.......

Seagate 750 GB Momentus will load windows in 17 seconds compared to the SSD's 16 seconds.

I'd try and find $30 to get one of these:

This PSU is $10 cheaper, after MIR, offers an extra $100 watts and gets the same 9.5 jonnyguru rating as the TX750
