Yeap :bounce:  You can take out that SSD if you don't want a SSD...you can also take Seasonic X-650W which is fully modular for better cable management... take Noctua NH-D14 if you're planning to overclock that processor to 3.9-4.1 GHz... :D

Looks like a great build, but I would suggest different drives my faves are these...

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=20-171-... ncix had a sale on these if still going.$89

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... The blue and red versions are good too

If the wd is to salty this is my second choice...

It is not that hard to do. I dont like cyberpower, cause your choices are limited and the same $1,000 build you have going here will cost you closer to $1500. Just post your final parts here and we will let you know if compatible, the rest is not that hard...

+1 assembling a system is FUN! :love:  just make sure that you always hold the right part of the components to avoid damage to your components caused by static charge and not to apply too much force while assembling so that you wont break any of the components... :sweat:
