Ah, alright thanks. Didn't even see that HDD on there. As for the rosewills stuff, i wasn't actually sure how good they are, they just happened to be in the combo deals when i was looking through it(Looks like its the only PSU on the 545 bundle), are they terrible?. Maybe a suggestion for a different one?.

Found a better combo with your motherboard. - $116.98

Only difference I can see between the RAM is the one I suggested has a slightly higher voltage (2.1-2.0V vs 1.8V) so it will run a bit hotter.
