oh man thanks for the reply guy's. Sorry i couldn't reply faster cause i went to bed, it was 5am ^.^

anyway, batuchka I don't see the point in wasting more money on a 620w went i can get a 600w for 62 bucks + free shipping. But that monitor looks good and is just 30$ more than the 21.5 i posted thanks, I may buy.

jbakerlent, thank you for the answer about windows 7 been looking for it for a while.4GB of ram is always expenses so i just I figured if i really need it, I'd just add another 2GB down the line.

That's fine about the RAM, but you should NOT get that PSU. It is terribly efficient "More than 72% efficiency at typical load operation" just awful.

The higher the better - means less energy wasted, less heat produced, and less cooling required. Also indicated higher quality. The OCZ is ok, not great, but usable.

Yep when assessing PSUs the last thing u want to be blinded by is simply looking at the wattage ^^
