Building A Gaming / Media PC

Here is the rig I want to buy. It has been a long time since I built a computer, so I hope this is good enough. Hardware is a lot cheaper than it used to be!

Rosewill R363-M-BK Black Ultra High Gloss Finished Computer Case
SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 4870 100259-1GL Video Card
GIGABYTE GA-MA790GP-UD4H ATX AMD Motherboard
AMD Phenom II X4 940 3.0GHz Black Edition Quad-core Processor
XIGMATEK HDT-S1283 120mm Rifle CPU Cooler
G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1066 (PC2 8500) DC Memory
ENCORE ENLWI-N PCI 2.3 Wireless Adapter
Antec EA650 650W Continuous Power Power Supply
2 MASSCOOL FD08025S1M4 Case Fans

Feedback would be great!

Nice catch! Yes, you are correct. My motherboard would not fit inside this case. It looks like it is more suited as a shuttle-ish type of computer. Thanks!

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
