    Change the PSU. You've spent loads of cash on such nice components and then poer it with something second class.
    Am I right in thinking there is 60gb storage in total? Does the cooler fit in the case?

    Re: help on first pc gaming build ever

    The PSU is not that great and also the build is not really that small.

    If you intend to travel a lot get a mini-ITX based build or a Shuttle.

    Re: help on first pc gaming build ever

    If your buying an asus sandybridge and a decent one at that why are you buying a bluetooth dongle? My mid range z68 asus board has bluetooth built in. Had a look at specs and I couldn't find an explicit mention of it however ROG connect is mentioned and I'm sure thats bluetooth powered.
    As everyone else has said the powersupply isn't great and the build isn't the smallest. It is obvious its not a full tower but if you want small shuttle is the way to go, however it gets pricey quickly.

    Another good idea for a small build is silverstones mini-itx cases. Like this : http://www.scan.co.uk/products/silve...lus-bronze-psu
    Heres what I've heard is a decent mini-itx mobo for your build too: http://www.scan.co.uk/products/zotac...(x16)-mini-itx

    If your looling at mini-itx you do need to be very careful with components as size really is an issue and also cooling needs to be addressed due to the restricted airflow in such a small case.
