Hey, I've been wanting to make a new rig since it's a long time since I've upgraded my pc, and I'm bit rusty on computer parts.. So I need some help going trough this system I've come up with, like if the PSU is good enough and so on.

case:
Antec 902
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Motherboard:
Asus maximus III gene
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

RAM:
Corsair Dominator DDR3 xms3
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

CPU:
i5
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

GPU:
Sapphire 5850
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

HD:
Western Digital Caviar® Black™ 500GB
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

optical drive:
Samsung DVD-spiller SH-D162D
couldn't finde link

extra CPU cooling:
Corsair H50
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

PSU:
Ace raw deal 620w
now most of you don't know Ace, but I've used their PSU for along time, so I trust them
stats: ACE RawDeal Plus 620W PSU ATX 12V Ver. 2.2, 2x SATA, 1× 6pin +1x 6+2pin PCIe, 120mm

Any comments would be nice, good or bad ones.

Look at the Samsung Spinpoint F3 500GB ($55) Great performance, cheaper than that WD.

Despite your RAM being Corsair Dominator, the timings are rather slow. This set: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231279 has tighter timings (and should have better performance).


Although the reviews I've read on the Corsair H50 are mostly positive, it still seems like an awful lot of money for the performance you're getting. For $77 you can get a premium air cooler. The CoGage True Spirit, TRUE-120, and Noctua NH-U12P are all cheaper.

Thanks for the reply nofun.. but the prices here in denmark are a little difrent here in denmark ( where I live ) so the h50 is more or less the best prefromence/price you can get

Ahh that makes a lot more sense!

Well, good luck to you on your build! Everything else else looks great!

Change the HDD to a 500gb Spinpoint f3, cheaper and faster, as said above.
