It's been a while since I built one from scratch. I am just about ready to place the order but am a little worried I forgot something obvious. Any help would be appreciated.

I already have mouse, monitor, and keyboard covered.

but I can't post a link to it for some reason.

    This looks great! Honestly, I think you got every little detail, down to the extra case fans and thermal compound.

    The only thing to maybe consider changing is the power supply. The 850W you have selected should work perfect for the system as is. The only reason to change it would be to upgrade to a 1000W or 1100W power supply to leave plenty of room for the power supply to support future upgrades to the PC. Power supplies usually come with longer warranties (that Corsair 850W has 10 years!) so getting a little bit higher wattage PSU could mean that you don't have to upgrade it with other parts years down the road.

    Other than that. This looks like a great build! Nice work!

    I hope this helps!
