  1. All looks good but i dont trust that PSU. I would go with something like this.

    PSU is the most overlooked component in a system. Spend wisly.
  2. Especially if you going to overclock it......having plenty of AMPS on the 12v rail is crucial to supply that extra voltage.
    NEWS FLASH: dont skimp on the PSU's. Youll regret it!

    Great budget mobo.
    However Id go with the E6300, you'll have no problem getting to 2.8ghz.
    Id also get a better ps.
    Look at the Coolermaster extreme power 600w for $74.99 at zipzoomfly w/free shipping. Its a great ps for moderate systems, Ive used about a dozen of them for builds.
    As for memory, you want 2 sticks, so you can run in dual channel. Also you want 2gb if your planning on gaming.
    I recommend this kit:
    This has better timings than the Corsair you referenced.
    (Ive gotten all my OCZ rebates)

    Dont go with Cooler Master PSU they are not recommended PSU's. They are tier 4 and 5 PSUs which are not recommended. Stay away from them.

    I would go with Corsair 2GB kit instead of OCZ which recently has compatibility issues with a lot of motherboards.
  4. Thanks for replies guys!
    OK, trying to reply to few questions here...
    Will than go with this Enermax PSU?
    Am going with E4300 not E6300 because easier to OC, 2.8 for sure, maybe 3.0?
    Am getting 2x1Gb Corsair - see price is $244, yes I also read that people had compatibility issues with OCZ RAM...

    Also will get 20" Samsung Wide - 204BW...

    Antything else, will buy today...
