    This looks good. I do not know if you have begun ordering parts yet.

    If this is your first build, you may not want to do a micro-ATX format, but do a regular, well-recognized ATX format.

    This gives you more flexibility with power supply and motherboard. Also, most regular ATX motherboards have more slots for add-ons, like more pci slots.

    Also, various people will be able to help you if everything is just regular ATX format.

    A common problem is the power supply dying after a year or two, and finding an ATX on short notice is not hard.
