^ Well dint notice that you had a HDD...So that would remove about $44 from the above total...So it comes to about ~$294

thanks for the quick reply, i was hoping to keep the form factor small - so im not sure about a mid tower case. (sorry I didnt mention this in my original post).
i do however like the idea of current gen hardware, but maybe a micro atx setup

^ Don't get that PSU...It is not of good quality and low efficiency...
Get the Corsair 400CX...well worth the money...Remember one thing - If you get a high quality PSU, that has high efficiency, then that translates to lower power consumption, thus saving money...
Or get this PSU - Silverstone 350W...It cost the same, but is far more efficient and actually will be more powerful than that PSU...
http://www.amazon.com/SilverStone-ST350-ATX12V-Power-Su...

The above PC would consume at the max 175-200W...So that 350W would suffice...

^ Well you can always return it back if you havent opened the box...IMO its worth to get a better PSU as it will last longer and would go very easy on the power bills...
