I am looking to build mylesf a new system. Currently I am using a GX280 (Sad, yea I know). I work IT but mostly on servers and backend networking. I'm a little out of the loop when it comes to the desktops. I know how to build them, just not up to date on the components. Hopefully you can offer any advice on the build I have put together.
Approximate Purchase Date: within 2 weeks

Would recommend this, especially if you want SLI/crossfire at some point. It's 10 extra dollars for an extra 100 watts, semi-modular design, and an equal level of reliability. Johnny Guru did a very in depth review of this PSU and it passed with flying colors.
