I've researched the whole summer and read far too many reviews on each of these parts I'm sure. But this is it. The final list. I will begin purchasing in late August or early September. So any advice between now and then would be great. I'm not on an incredibly tight budget but would like to stay where I am if not a little cheaper. Please, feel free tear this list apart. I'd appreciate any comments or concerns. I even typed up the part list below for those too lazy to click on the link to my parts list http://pcpartpicker.com/p/BLB7GX so there is no excuse not to comment! Thanks guys.

CPU: Fx 6300

Mobo: Asus M5A97 r2.0

RAM: Gskill 1600 2 x 4GB

Storage: Seagate 1TB 7200 HD Samsung 840 EVO 120 GB SSD

Looks fine, psu is prolly a little overkill tho, for a estimated 349w load I'd prolly go for a 550w unit, seasonic made & gold rated is my usual thing, gold efficiency will save you money over the years via a cheaper electricity bill.

You can save ~$20 on the ssd with a pny xlr8.

You don't need to type up a list like that, just copy & paste the "export/markup" button text from the build page -

Well I feel dumb. Thanks for the input. The Samsung SSD isn't worth the high dollar? Do I even really need an SSD right now? I've been debating back and forth

SSDs are totally awesome & I would never build a pc without one now, 840 evo is just not the best value atm is all, xlr8 spec is virtually the same iirc.

edit. No need to feel dumb! :D

Alright, thanks for some confirmation. I'll go ahead and swap those out

In your opinion is it worth spending the money on a modular psu? I'm worried especially in a mid tower it will be a struggle to fit all the cabling in.

Still plenty of room in a mid tower, I would think you'd be fine with non-modular.

That's what I'm thinking too. This will be my first build and I'm thinking even with modular i'm still going to have poor cable management and it won't look neat anyway

Your PSU is a little overkill, unless you plan to upgrade later on, i think you should go with a 650 watt. You'll save a few extra bucks that way.

EVGA also makes some nice inexpensive power supplies http://pcpartpicker.com/part/evga-power-supply-120g10650xr

On Newegg that psu has some sketchy reviews. I'll keep looking into to it though. Thanks for the suggestion. If it does consistently work that's a nice price tag
