So this is what I have so far.


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

HDD: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Might go for a 320GB not sure yet, very close on money.

So that's what I've got. I'm not so sure on the PSU but it seems to be the best on the price. Newegg has the Corsair 400W PSU with a combo with my HD for $10 off which makes the PSU $40 instead of $50 so I would save a few bucks on that but my video card needs more wattage I think.

Any suggestions? Total comes to $324 (not including the $80 I spent on my video card already)

Hmm seems to be about 364 watts for my system. That's a little close to 400. I think I'll go with the rosewill PSU

Rosewill makes some bad PSUs that have damaged peoples systems. Try to stick with Antec, Corsair, Seasonic, PC Power & COoling or even something like the OCZ Fatal1ty 550W.
