  1. Looks good overall, would switch out the mobo for maybe the Asus B85M-G, I and most builders I know won't touch MSI mobos due to the poor QC
  2. I would get a PSU with more watts. That looks like it will be cutting it close.

    It won't be. That machine will peak at under 300 watts for sure, the CX430 can put out 384 watts on the 12v line alone, which means even if every single watt is under the 12v line and the machines actually uses a full 300watts (doubtful) then it would only be still under 80% capacity.

    Are their any other Mobos that have mid - high range ratings?
  5. Are you decided on the B85 chipset, and what's the budget for the mobo?
  6. Around 50$ - 110$

    Maybe the Asus H87M-E
