Default Buidling up a new computer

I'm building a new computer, but I've got a lot of other parts I can use, so I'm buying piece by piece. I just made my first acquisition...

Going to retire my old Antec server case, and put the gaming computer into my Thermaltake Xaser III V1000D. Then I'm going to retire the Xaser and replace it with this...

Cool, I'm a fan of both of those cases, especially the Cosmos. I have the Centurion 5, another Cooler Master. It'* built very well and was very affordable which let me spend more money on the other parts.

Yea, the P180 I'm using for my server, which hooks up to my TV in the living room and functions as a theater system. The equipment I have is already silent in the current case, so I don't think I'll be disappointed. I love the overkill of the cosmos, too. I'm also thinking of buying this:

When I build for other people, I almost exclusively use Cooler Master cases for their value. None have been disappointed with quality or style.

That Cosmos case looks sharp and I'm not even a fan of cases with front doors on them.

I've got the Coolermaster Power supply you linked to. It was $59 after rebate for me... I would've preferred a modular supply, but I couldn't pass up that deal.

It *JUST* reaches all the pins on my mobo in the p180 case, when running them all behind the mobo tray fwiw.

Thanks, good input. I don't care about modular, I used to build computers for a living so I'm an artist with that ****.

I have that Coolermaster Cosmos case for my gaming pc I built last December. Amazing case. The only reason I got it was because of the rebate, which made it in my price range ($100)
