You'll be fine with a 450W, this one from Corsair would be the best you can get http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... I would go with this case http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... . Superior cooling and better overall build quality. You can combo it with the Wester Digital Black 640GB so you won't need to get those three small HDD's. And you get a massive $45 combo discount too http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?Ite... m 0 l Best solution aford10 November 1, 2009 12:13:36 AM I'd stick with the OCZ PSU that you picked. It's good quality, modular, and provides plenty of power. The corsair listed by build is also good, but with the rebate on the OCZ, it's a better deal. If you're going to get the DDR3 1600, try fitting the i5 into your budget. For the case, this is a good deal. But it all depends on your aesthetic preference. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Share Can't find your answer ? Ask !
