Hi there, I'm in the middle of building my first computer and someone gave me the following build:

It looks good but there 2 problems. I need the computer now and the GPU and PSU are both out of stock. Also there's a note at the bottom about the ram being too high a voltage which im unsure what that means.

Can someone suggest a new PSU and GPU around the same price to replace those that would be compatible with the system. Also, can anyone verify that the ram will work with this machine. Thanks a bunch.
