Better power supply, plus in that case the PSU is hidden underneath so you won't see it anyhow... http://pcpartpicker.com/part/xfx-power-supply-p1750bbefx

Rest looks good...RAM could be better but if you need white that's really the only choice. From what I've read that CPU overclocks nicely but you'll want a cooler for it

I'll get a cooler once I start overclocking (More likely i'll start overclocking once I get a cooler :P)

I honestly hate big air coolers. I'll probably end up spending way more then I need and getting this. http://pcpartpicker.com/part/nzxt-cpu-cooler-rlkrx4101

P.S. NZXT Build FTW
