Talking Just ordered my first build! yaya! :D

I'm really excited, just finished ordering all the parts to my first PC!
The build includes:

ASRock 880GM-LE FX AM3+ AMD 880G Micro ATX AMD Motherboard

Phenom II X4 965 Processor

GeForce GTX 660 2GB 192-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16

Team Xtreem Dark Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3

Seagate Barracuda 1TB 7200 RPM SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive

I'd like to give a shout out to PP, who really helped me (a complete newb) in every aspect of the build. Thanks PP, you're awesome!

Lol, maybe so, but not having any unused wires anywhere in the case helps with overall airflow. Tryhard or not, I'll take my modular any day over non modular.
