All of that looks great! Are you planning to keep the stock HSF? If you are planning to OC that thing (please, oh please) then you might want to consider an aftermarket HSF.

Looks good. If you budget for a TRUE, go for it. Otherwise, the xigmatek 1283 should do the job.

Anyone have a link to a comparison between Xigmatek and TRUE

I haven't noticed any reviews rating the XIG higher than the TRUE.

what is a back bracket?

They are speaking of the retention bracket for the Xigmatek.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835233019

http://benchmarkreviews.com/index.ph...1&limitstart=7

Theres a review. Many go back and fourth, some showing the TRUE is better, others saying the Xigmatek is better.

Also if you want a modular PSU for good cable management, I urge you to consider a Silverstone PSU.

Oh, I got mine for $100, should be here tomorrow along with the rest of the rig!!!
