Just a few tips,check for any conditions imposed on you due to the lenght of your video card,get it in early.Decide early the orientation and placement of your storage devices(does your card conflict with your desired placement of your storage devices?).Is there any conflict with your cpu cooler and your RAM sticks? Decide on how you are going to orient your cpu cooler (that is if you have a choice).All my builds first get powered up on a block of wood (screwed down to standoffs in the wood).Many times we get posts from people that say everything looks fine but no boot.These posts usually end up with the OP removing the board from the case and booting the board outside the case.You want to make sure you are putting good stuff in that case and that no problems were brought on by moving the gear into the case.

thats one of the best kind of PSUs in my opinion that way you only have the cables you need and no extra cables to clutter up your case...when u get done throw up a pic of the finished product we would all like to see it and welcome to ur new addiction smile.gif

Install the psu and when you get to the point where you are attaching the cables to things pick out the ones you need for your mobo, gpu, storage and such. Then attach the other ends of the cables to the psu. Don't use the ones on the psu you don't need.

^ Wood or PSU plugged into a wall! Hopefully you haven't been building it on a shag carpet

Well that's 100% ground you should be fine just touching the metal of a case or the psu not plugged in.
