The NZXT Guardian was my first case a few years back and to be honest it is by far the cheapest made NZXT case they have still since it's 5+ years old. A frustrating case for beginer builders. It also has poor airflow and no space for cable management. I'd steer away from that and go with something else but that's just my experience with it.

I would go with this instead, an i3 less likely to be a bottleneck than a single cored Pentium. The 380x is nice and all but in a budget case like this the 380 is more favourable due to the lower price. The 380x currently has marginal performance gains over the 380, although of course that may change later after driver performance upgrades.

The WD Blue also has double the cache of the Toshiba for about 1 dollar more, as well as being known to be reliable

And then there's the Cooler Master CM Storm bundle for peripherals

Only buying from Amazon is a bad idea, since It will be more expensive, and amazon currently only have 6/10 of the parts on the list above.
