Two things that I would like feedback on are:
1. Is everything compatible with one another?
2. Anything that I should think about switching out or upgrading/changing?


I normally use newegg.com for parts, however, i am trying to get this before christmas and directron.com is a warehouse here in Houston, TX that I can get pick up several hundreds of computer parts. I decided this time around I needed to use them instead of trustworthy newegg considering the circumstance.

Quote:

Thermaltake TR2 RX 750 W is, according to our methodology, a flawed product that must be avoided at all costs. It can’t deliver its labeled wattage at high temperatures, but this is not the worst of it: ripple and noise level are way above the maximum allowed when you pull 80% or more from the unit’s labeled capacity (i.e., 600 W and above), overloading your components (especially electrolytic capacitors from the motherboard and video cards), which can cause your PC to present an erratic behavior (crashes and random resets) and, under extreme conditions, damage components.

Okay. I will look into replacing that partivular psu. Thanks for the heads up, I appreciate that.

Everything else seems to be okay and compatible? Worst fear is that I buy all parts and something be incorrect.
