This is my first foray into building my own computer, and I want to do it right and make sure I have reasonable room to improve in the future. The price is pretty much right at what I'm comfortable spending, unless something NEEDS to be changed.

So, here.

+ Windows 7 Professional

Total price = $1412



Question 1, DO I NEED A BIGGER POWER SUPPLY?
Question 2, do I need more cooling beyond what this build provides?
Question 3, any compatibility issues?
Question 4, thoughts?

^ Hmmm good build,.. had posted a similar build yesterday for another member,...

For your questions -
1. No, if you will stick with 1 card, that PSU can handle the system even when overclocked.

2. No unless you are overclocking the stock setup should be fine,... If overclocking, then a CPU cooler would be a very good addition,...

3. No, they are fine,...

4. Good build, some alternatives,...
RAM - Even this would be fine, IMO Crucial is as good or better than GSKillz,...
