You are fine with everything else, but I do not trust Raidmax for a PSU. That is just me. Look at this for guidance: *READ FIRST* Updated Power supply guide

Which province are you?

I'd try looking at NCIX.com as its in BC. shippings faster and alot of times cheaper, and you could save abunch in tax if you don't yet have hst or live in BC.
