Q: why put a notebook hard drive into your desktop?

PS. I don't think you will be able to tinker with your system as much with that Intel motherboard as to say... asus or gigabyte motherboards.

Newegg.ca - CORSAIR CMPSU-650TX 650W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Compatible with Core i7 Power Supply
the 650tx is $5 cheaper
more future resistant with its larger watt rating.

still don't know about that intel motherboard

but everything else looks decent
