    I'm going with a cooler master Silent pro M2 850w, mainly because I got someone giving it to me for a good price, and it's brand new whereas the EVGA power supply was not. Hopefully it'll work. I haven't seen any bad reviews on it and I've heard good stuff about the 1st generation Silent Pro M, so I'm assuming the newer version of it will do just as fine, if not better.

    The only reason you won't be able to see the power supply plastic cover, is because sometimes they put the serial number sticker to far down and not in the centre.
    If you see above the picture you will see there is no sticker, and you can see the actual gaps on the power supply connector, which is perfectly normal.

    Well good luck on your first time build, you chose a good motherboard. I actually have two UD5H boards (until Haswell anyway) and I really like them.

    If you choose to flash the bios I would go with either F14 final, or F15r beta. I would skip the F15q beta on Gigabyte's site.
    Of course Stasio keeps links here for the latest beta bios, chipset drivers, etc making TT a one stop shop for any of the board's software.

    Thanks! Someone recommended it to me as gigabytes customer service is excellent, and sorry but, what exactly is "Flashing" the bios, what does it do and why would I want to do it?

    The boards BIOS might be periodically updated to provide for example, bug fixes, functionality or for compatibility issues.
    As for what the BIOS is I suggest you google it or hit Wikipedia.
