Default One last check before I send it off...

Is all of this compatible or good? I'm overclocking, of course. Might want to save a bit of money though.

The 450W one comes with the case...usually means it's no good. I'm guessing he's got the 550w cause he doesn't want to use a crappy psu.

By the way, the build looks good to me, but I'm not overly experienced...I'd wait for some more replies from some of the "techier" guys.

Its ready to go.

Just a recomendation, get a cable tidy kit, a rounded IDE cable (the mobo comes with 2 yellow ones I think, but you may want a different colour/UV reactive.) and a UV sata cable. Cathodes are really a must with a window (I recomend UV, but you may prefer coloured.)

Don't worry, I read in a review the cables are able to be tucked away in the case, and there are a good amount of LED fans. might get a few black ones, though. Black and green.
