After a LOT of research I came up with this build: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/ydt3jX Do you have any suggestions for it?

For the PSU, your list uses 433W and you only have a 500W PSU. It will be under stress since PSUs only operate their best at about 55% usage. The other issue is that you won't have much room for any upgrading with this PSU. Look for a 600-700W version for this build. ;)

The Western Digital Blue HDDs are for regular home PCs, and your build looks more like a gaming build. I would recommend a better WD drive or a Seagate Barracuda. Otherwise, it looks good.

Didn't know that, thanks. I just went with one of the cheapest hard drives I could with good reviews. I'll change it to a Seagate Barracuda since those look reasonably priced.

WOAH WOAH WOAH. The western digital caviar blue series is among one of the highest regarded hard drives on the market. The seagate have a much larger failure rate than the western digital drives, The western digital and the seegate barricuda have the same RPm at 7200. I don't know where you got that info sir but you are mistaken. Unless you are talking about WD blacks which are better but pricier

My dad bought a used Seagate drive 6-7 years ago, and it still works great! On the other hand, I didn't say WD drives were bad either, mine lasted for 9-10 years! If you still want to go with WD, get a WD Green drive. For example, the Greens have more storage than the Blues, and they also usually have a bigger cache too. They are basically compromise between Blues and Blacks.

I think you mean blue is a compromise of green or black. Blue is faster than green slower than black. Here you know what here you go. http://www.wdc.com/en/products/internal/desktop/

I already saw a chart like that on Amazon.
