Should i change any of these? if so which ones?

i've been looking into building a $400-$440 gaming pc that can play most f2p and older games at medium-ish settings. so far what i came up with is:

Intel pentium g860 3.0ghz 68$

ASRock H61M-DGS micro atx mobo 45$

Crucial Ballistix 2x2 1600mhz ram 31$

Toshiba 500gb 7200rpm HDD 48$

PowerColor Radeon HD 6670 1gb 60$

Logysis 550w PSU 20$

Samsung CD/DVD writer 17$

win 8 64 bit oem 89$

TP link usb 2.0 wifi adapter 14$

Apex SK-393-C Case (and fans) 30$

Total 427$

Keep in mind i do not want to use AMD Cpus, and im trying to maximize gaming performance with this build while still being able to upgrade to other lga1155 cpus. early next year. Your advice is appreciated!

    alright! what is the real problem with the cheaper psu's? do they just die out or..?
  6. They die early , don't run at all , or damage your other components.Don't go too cheap on the PSU it's the heart of your system.
