  1. Best answer
    get a more decent Power supply. This one has cheap component. For the same price this EVGA is better quality : http://pcpartpicker.com/part/evga-power-supply-100b10500kr

    the rest is very good !
  2. Is there anything else about my build that could make it cheaper? Parts of the same quality but at a better price?
  3. Is there anything I could do to the build to make it cost less? Like parts of the same quality but at a lower price?
