    The case and power supply seem like odd choices to me.

    On a personal note, I feel there are much more attractive and more refined (less tacky) cases than that thing. On a practical note, it is only USB 2.0 on the front. Something like the Corsair 200r is cheaper and would be a better choice, I feel.

    The power supply looks cheap and low quality. I could just not be familiar with the brand, but I would recommend something by Antec, Corsair, Cooler Master, Seasonic, etc.
