Power Supply: 1 x ThermalTake 750W Evo Blue - ATX 12V v2.3, EPS 12V v2.91, 140mm Blue LED Fan, Modular Cables
6xSATA, 2xPCI-E 8-Pin, 2xPCI-E 6-Pin
those parts are fine , however, if I were you I would get a 955 not 965 as they are basically the same processor , and with the money saved get an AM3 mobo instead of AM2+, and ditch the geforce , ATI make miles better cards for the money , the 5750 is one example at around £100
Dude, why are you getting an AM2+ board? Get an AM3 board and DDR3 RAM. AM2+ is obsolete.
4890 is essentially the same as 275.
How much are you paying for the 275? I guess 250, right?
For $50 more you can get a 5850. Miles ahead of 275. Also, DX11, lower power consumption, lower heat generation... ++++. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?
And yes I would ditch that processor too and get a PII 955BE. Can be overclocked to the same levels as 965 with ease.
