  1. they are compatible, but you need some improvement there...

    haswell build will be nice
    and bigger psu
  2. What would you recommend for the power supply?
  3. your total budget? country?
  4. Singapore $1220. I like the BitFenix Mini-ITX Tower Case.
  5. As Radeon said, you could use a bigger PSU. You don't need it now, but if you upgrade later you will have to replace it. 430W is also cutting it pretty close for a 7870, many of which call for a 450W or so PSU. As time goes on, your PSU will degrade and power will decline. It will take a while, but could eventually damage other components, namely the graphics card.

    Also, I would recommend making the leap to a WD Caviar Black. They are a better drive and have a five year warranty.
  6. Ok i shall look into the Western digital Caviar Black. I still have no idea which power supplies are good and bad. Any help with that would be appreciated.
