More about first time computer build
  1. i'm no computer building expert, but it looks fine to me.

    adjustments i would make:

    1. add an aftermarket cpu cooler if you're going to be overclocking. if you're not overclocking, you could get a cheaper CPU and board, maybe a i5-3450 and H77 or B75 mobo.
    2. if you're not planning on changing or adding parts in the future, you could get away with a 500-550W PSU.
    3. maybe get an mATX motherboard if you aren't going to use all/most of the pci slots on an ATX. they are a little bit cheaper.

    remember, take everything i've said with a grain of salt.
