I chose the case based on the fact that it is well equipped for future upgrades like water cooling, etc.

Also, for an ssd, would this work? its the same exact price on Newegg

Ok I'll look around. Though as the case is the only thing I am doing to the build in terms of looks, I might just keep it and go over budget. As long as the case won't cause any problems, I'll just hold onto it.

Thanks a ton for the input

Getting all the parts from Newegg. Checked out the prices on pc part picker or whatever that website was and ordering all the parts from different places only saved me about $15.00. Also, I'll try and find a 1TB HD for the same price.
