I would not trust that Raidmax piece of junk power supply. Here is what I would do:

1) Don't get that board, as you have a non "K" processor. Save money and get one like this:

2) Save $10 on your graphics card and get a really nice one at the same time:

Use the money saved to get a better power supply and case:

There are some cheaper ones if you want to go onto Newegg and do an advanced search. That's the best one for that price though.

awesome this case looks pretty sick. ( im going with the blue one :p  ) thanks for all the help and support

My $0.02

Keep the case if you like it, just buy a good dependable PSU, and keep the other one as a backup. The PSU is the single most important piece of your computer, don't skimp on it or you will be paying the price.

Seasonic is one of the best brands for power supplies. I also like corsair (because they are made by seasonic) but they are a little more expensive.

You are looking at a $190 32nm I5 CPU, for the same price you can buy a faster 22nm current generation CPU.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

The ram you selected is compatible with your motherboard, but right now Newegg has a special where you can bundle faster ram from the same company with that motherboard and its cheaper then what you selected. Make sure you check their bundle deals out when you are ready to purchase.

Your selected HDD capacity is rather small. Make sure before you buy, that 500Gb will be enough space for you. Its cheap to increase to 1tb or 1.5tb but expensive and more complex to add additional drives later down the road.

Happy building!
