First Computer Build, Advice Appreciated!

RE: First Computer Build, Advice Appreciated!
That's extremely concerning, but thanks for the tip! I imagine I should be reasonably well off since I wont be adding an optical drive or an HDD, which should help a bit on space, but I suppose we'll see..

Haha. There's just a lot of folding, cramming, and realizing you have to reinstall the GPU to fit the RAM in first....all while dealing with sharp, interior edges. At least, that's how it was in 2005...and I think cases have come a long way since then. Smile

No HDD or Optical to work around should help too.

RE: First Computer Build, Advice Appreciated!
Okay, I took some time to put the list into google drive, so this is roughly where I am at the moment. Any thoughts on a power supply? I've found it very hard to determine what is good value here. According to calculations, my machine requires 298W, but I'd imagine I want a power supply more like 500W? And since I'm using mini ITX, it should be modular with special cables, correct? I read up a bit on memory, and as I understand it higher speed memory isn't actually all that helpful. Also, these sticks have pretty low latency, and seem to be a really good deal at their price (110).

Many of my original questions still stand, so any help on those would be great. Not sure on the peripherals, could easily swap those around based on deals. More interested in thoughts on the overall build.

The SilverStone Strider Plus ST50F-P 500W ATX seems like a good fit. Small, quiet, and modular: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0047CQ1B4/

You may want to get the recommended shorter cable pack too, to save more room: http://www.amazon.com/SilverStone-PP05-S...0025VKUN4/

From the NewEgg Page, that case can support:
"ATX PSUs, up to 160mm in length (To fit in combination with a long graphics card, PSUs with modular connectors on the back typically need to be shorter than 160mm). Graphics cards, up to 310mm in length, when two HDD brackets are removed (Graphics cards longer than 170mm will conflict with PSUs longer than 160mm)"

The 270X card is 10.24" x 5.08" x 1.50" or about 260mm long, and the Silver Stone is less than 140mm, so that should work. Like it says, you'd just pop out the adjacent hard drive cages. You're not using them anyway.
