This is my second build ever. My first build, was mediocre at best. I was naive and didn't know the difference between a GeForce GT and a GTX card, so of course I chose the wrong one. Regardless, this build I did a little bit more research on, and boy did it pay off. I was originally going to wait and pick up good deals as they came along, but I just got too anxious and wanted to build it now. Basically, my budget was $1300, but I'd already had the HDD as well as finding some really good deals at my local MicroCenter (where I ended up buying everything, except for the NZXT fan). This was super fun to work on and actually went together fairly easily. My only suggestion to people working on this case (the 380t) is to make sure you have all the connectors plugged in before you put in whatever cooler, ESPECIALLY if you have a watercooler, such as the H80 or the H100i. Also, make sure you actually read the manuals and remember to put the CPU backplate on (is that the right term, I forget). One other thing to think about: although this is a very roomy case, and looks so nice, it really isn't all that roomy. I was forced to take the hard drive cage out to fit my PSU, and had to bend a screw cutout with a pair of pliers. Which, on the bright side, left plenty of room for cable management, forced me to leave my hdd on the bottom of the case without mounting it. I'll come up with a solution sometime, but for now, this will do as long as I don't move it.
