And the price difference for going from 4GB to 8GB is so small 8GB is definitely a great choice. Plus your friends will all be impressed.
Thanks, I completely forgot about the zip ties. And, yeah my freinds are all computer illiterate, they would be impressed .

Nice build BTW!
I beleive you can get a 5-pack of anti-static wristbands for like $4 w/ free shipping on Newegg and Amazon. It's always better to be safe then sorry lol

I don't know much about that particular power supply, but I don't know if I would trust Rosewill brand power supplies. I would probably look for another power supply, one with good reviews. There are solid power supplies out there in that wattage that won't break the bank. If your budget has room, I would look at improving that component. Also, if you want to save a little, I think the P67 motherboards are cheaper then the Z68 ones. You could save a little that way and not really give up that much.

Not all Rosewill power supplies are junk (a lot are though). The Green Series are actually quite reliable and solidly built.
