G'day Folks,

Please let me know if it will all fit together and run smoothly because currently that is my biggest worry. Also, if there is any extra insider knowledge to help me set it up? If I buy everything on this list will i have what i need to put it together? Am i missing anything?

Everything was looking great until I read Cooler Master PSU :( 

Cooler Master PSU are not highly recommend!! I would feel better about your build seeing an Antec, Corsair or SeaSonic PSU listed. These three are pretty much the Top Tier in PSU's. If you want the option to run SLI, I would suggest upping your PSU to a 750W unit.


As for building a PC help, I would read through these two following threads. They will help you through the process.
