    Changed a few things, overall you'll have more performance, and it's also a bit cheaper. And you'll have a PSU that won't blow your PC up as the one that you chose would have...

  4. solid will do well for 1080p single monitor gaming for a while. when the time comes all you will need is a GPU upgrade
  5. Looks good but you are missing the CPU cooler or is it not needed?

  6. There is one that comes with the CPU, and it will be enough since you're not going to overclock.
