1.5K First Build, Some Concerns

Note: I'm in Canada Full Parts List

This is my first build and I have some concerns. I think I've checked everything to make sure everything is compatible and that the parts all fit the case, but I'm still pretty nervous.

Note: I chose the 850W PSU because I might want to overclock and/or add more stuff to the computer in the future. If I overclock I'll of course get a better (non-stock) HSF.

A double check that everything is compatible/fits would be great. Any further suggestions of any kind would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for your time :) Have an awesome day and good luck to you all!

This is all compatible. It looks like the intel version of my AMD one. It's ok being nervous, and you can fit so much in that case.

This picture shows it being half full. http://cwsmgmt.corsair.com/media/Blogs/how-to-build-a-pc/GPUs/9.png

Corsair HX850: If you have a preference for Corsair, following model is of better quality and lower cost, Corsair AX860

Thanks, I'll take it into consideration :) However, I'm getting that the AX860 is $200, and that the HX850 is $160 (with rebates) on Newegg.ca

There are others, re-branded Seasonic, that are cheaper even excluding the rebates. .e.g XFX P1-850B-BEFX
