  1. Newegg is OK?
  2. Looks OK.

    I'd get a GTX 460 instead of that 550 Ti though, same price, but more powerful. Also, that power supply is pretty cheap - maybe look at a Corsair Builder model or something...
  3. you can just use the CPU cooler that comes with the CPU, the cooler that you listed is no better.
  4. So are they all compatible with each other?
  5. Yep, everything should work together just fine!
  6. You sure it the power supply is enough if i switch the Geforce Gtx 550 Ti to Geforce Gtx 460?
  7. Like I mentioned in my first post, I'd definitely get something by Corsair if I were you. A 500w one is plenty as long as it is a good brand. That Coolmax one is really sketchy.
