RE: Thanks!!!
So the final build was as listed below and even though it was my first PC build ever it was much easier then I had imagined. My only issue which I was able to easy find the solution by asking here on the forums Big Grin was a HDMI display issue.

I'm posting a pic of the insides allthough I'm almost embarased to do so as my cable management is horrible. Maybe one boring sunday I'll redo it. Any tips?

RE: Thanks!!!
Very nice, does that case not have a cable management system that allows you to run the cables through the back of the case? My build also looks a mess, but the mess is hidden in the back panel.

Yes, the HAF 922 does and that's what I'd do too. Get some zipties as well and you'll have all that you need to do a nice cable management job.
