*** Is NCIX US/SuperBiiz/OutletPC reliable? I figured I'd buy everything off Newegg and Amazon because of Amazon Prime and Newegg's reputation. ***

I included the case just in case but not including it in the total because I got one for free.
If there's anywhere I can save money or improve on, please let me know. Anything helps!

Thanks in advance!

Its good but dont get that PSU. Get the EVGA B2 Series its cheaper and much more reliable.

I would still get the 850B2 because its cheaper, really really reliable, and I can do much more upgrades with it.
