    Any specific reasons you picked
    Gigabyte GA-H87-D3H ATX LGA1150 Motherboard
    Power Supply: XFX TS 550W 80+ Bronze Certified ATX Power Supply
    Over other options?
  6. he picked the xfx 550w power supply because it is by far the best power supply for anywhere near its price.... so DO NOT change out the power supply for something cheaper or even a little bit more.
