Skittles,

The Corsair TX650M PSU is Good and has Excellent ratings by reviewers.

This will be an Excellent Build for your needs and budget !!!! :) :)

Did you get the 23" monitor too ??

no monitor having trouble getting parts to go in like mother board is being held by 4 or 5 screws instead of all 6 since it didnt line to well even when i tried bending to get them all to line up. that and the fan cable is to small to add a fan in the front. so ima have two at top and one in back shouldnt be to bad. but im confused a bit on where things r plugging in lol but its getting there taking my time 2 hours now haha

Do NOT force anything that will not fit correctly in the Build !!!!!!

The MB is 12" x 8.6" and not the normal 12" x 9.6" so be CAREFUL when fitting up to the Stand-Offs and Case.

Skittles,

The Manual is Very Bad !!!!

Page 13 is the key.

Item 19 on Page 13 is where you plug your Case cables into.

Let me see if I find you a picture of how they go.

For right now do NOT plug in the Case wires and just use the Buttons on the motherboard to test with.

OK.

Do NOT power that machine up until you have checked (10) times that the wiring and connections are ALL ABSOLUTELY CORRECT according to ALL the documentation that came with the MB. :) :)

NO NO Guessing.

If you are not sure, just ask, alright ????
