The power supply is a little overkill that system would run fine on a quality 400watt PSU. Asus, Gigabyte and MSI all have similar quality products so the MSI should do well. | Report abuse techblu January 13, 2011 4:57:14 PM I revised my build to include a ATX motherboard and an Nvidia GTX 470 GPU. I would some input if the GIGABYTE GA-X58A-UD3R is a good choice or should I look at a Asus motherboard?
