Looks like a a decent build, except for the PSU which is a very bad one. Just switch it to this one http://www.aria.co.uk/Products/Components/Power+Supplie... which should probably not cost much more, and enjoy your build !


So it'll be able to play Wildstar, TF2, L4D, CS:GO, The Sims 3 etc.?

I need a modular power supply.

The cheapest modular PSU that you could get would be this one : http://www.aria.co.uk/Products/Components/Power+Supplie.... It's out of your budget, sir.
Aside from that, yes, you will be able to play those games with that build, for sure.
