  1. I would get an xfx550 PSU. Much better quality than the CX line from Corsair. Get a 7200rpm drive. Those green drives are mighty slow.
  2. Your component priorities are out of are out of whack ... you are spending $250+ on your CPU/Mobo (which I'm not sure what an MSI H81 is but suspect it would not be 'top-shelf'), buying an el-cheapo HDD, and only spending $170 on your video card in a 'gaming build'

    Flip things around -- spend $250+ on your video card and buy an i3 or an FX6300.
