Looking for a second opinion

I'm building my first PC. I've watched hour of videos on how to do it and what to look for and I think it's finally done. I'm just not 100% sure on the PSU as it is a rather old module. If you guys could give my build a look over that would be awesome.

It all looks good to me.

For the PSU, its a fine unit. You could get something like an EVGA SUpernova G2 if you wanted to but the one you have is fine as is no worries.

If you never built a PC, going with the full retail version of WIndows 10 also makes installation of the OS easier.

Could change the case and get a cheaper/nicer one?

Such as

NZXT S340 (Black/Red) ATX Mid Tower

These cases usually come in all sorts of colors and are perfect to build in. Also with this can you will be able to see everything inside.

You could save $40 on the optical drive as youll only need this to download windows 10 and also the drivers if you wanted to.

Not so sure on the smaller changes you made but I'll definitely take a closer look at that motherboard. Thanks
