I am trying to build my first PC and thats link to my build: http://www.lambda-tek.com/computing/pcdesigner.pl?cart=...
Wanted to ask oppinion about it. I was aiming not to spend too much but put quality parts and looking to the future to have possibility to upgrade by adding new components to this build. Are my choices allright? Give me your thoughts. I think motherboard is quite good and there is space for upgrade, but im not sure if 550W PSU i chose is enough or will be enough if I add more parts. All advices are welcome. Cheers.
The Antec Basiq power supply you selected is an older version. Not recommended.
I had a look around your online vendor and discovered they offered Corsair power supplies. Corsair has an excellent reputation for high quality psu's that are rock steady and stable. In the USA the units come with a 5 year warranty.
Here's the VX550 watt version at your vendor in the UK:
Future upgrades will affect the choice. If you are a hardcore gamer, into overclocking, and want to use two video cards in SLI or Crossfire mode, then you would better off getting the Corsair TX750 or higer depending on possible future power requirements.
