It was a last minute decision to snatch that PSU got it on Cyber-Monday for $50. Glad it checks out, was a little worried that the motherboard would have trouble fitting in the case.

Others will chime in soon

The PSU is atleast 80 certified that will be enough for now but if you do more intense things like overclocking it will need to be stepped up

The case and board might be a little snug but you can make it work

kingofblob,
Looks like you have a great rig coming together. I think you should be ok with that EVGA psu and also the mobo will fix with ease in the 650d case. You may want to take some time and consider some optional items like braided cable extensions as well as led or premium fans for noise or high air volumes, also case lighting as you have a nice side window. I've linked some idea's for your consideration.

Instead of a 3TB and a 1TB HDD, I would grab one of the Seagate HDD.15 4TB HDD. On sale you can get them for about $140-150.

Multiple drives could be the OP's intention to have redundancy safeguard ?

Then I'd still get a 4TB drive over the 3TB drive. On sale the price is just right!

Are 4tb drives proven? I wondered that very thing when opting for my 3tb drive?
