The only thing i can say is id like a psu that has a bottom or top fan so i can take advantage of that in my case. It has to be 80+ certified plz.

Is there anything here u think i should change? Let me know your guys criticisms thanks!

    if you go for this combo, i believe you should be able to get BOTH shogun 2 and dirt 2:

  2. not reallly trying to raise the overall price so i cannot get that psu sorry. but thanks for the combo find!
  3. well...if $5 more is too rich for your blood, then i will actually suggest a cheaper dvd burner:

    also happens to be all black, which is nice.
  4. its actually 15 bux more expensive i could do 5 dollars. im just on a really tight budget

    i think i will go with this corsair psu instead. i think its a huge upgrade visually and it has a huge MIR :D
  5. im gonna change my dvd/cd combo cause sony is a decent brand and its a total of 7 dollars cheaper if u include shipping!
