I'm a newbie and excited to learn from anyone willing to share knowledge! I plan to order my parts soon and have narrowed down the major pieces as I've listed below, wondered if you could give an opinion on my selections and make suggestions if something doesnt look alright. Also looking for imput on the case I have chosen http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...2E16811125460.
Since this is my first build I also have no idea what other misc. parts and items I should be getting (fans, cooling devices, cords, misc parts, blue lights for my clear sided case
). If you don't mind I've love some insight on what else I should be buying.

There are a few places where I said or cause I'm still a little up in the air on a couple items. Have had recommendations from people for a few things and not sure what is best so if you have an opinion on those items I would love to hear it! I'm hoping to order all my stuff tonight so I'm earnestly seeking opinions on current selections and what other parts and accessories I will need. I am ordering some of my parts through zipzoomfly.com and some from newegg.com. Can't wait to get started but I want to make sure I get everything I need to begin with! Thanks.
