Looks like a solid build. I personally own 2 Rosewill PSU and have installed an additional 3 they work really well. I am assuming you have an operating system already? Remember that operating systems installed by a manufacture (OEM versions) will not work on a different system (legally).

I think your links are account specific, and will not work as you intended.
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.

You were probably in the secured portion of NewEgg, your wishlist perhaps, and it won't let you link to that section of the site

Having grandkids is God's way of giving you a 2nd chance because you were too busy working your butt off the 1st time around
