If you like Corsair PSU, I'd look at the "Enthusiast" series and compare prices since the Enthusiast is 80+ Bronze while the Gaming series is just 80+. Otherwise, this looks like a good build. andcha November 19, 2011 10:21:26 AM Thanks for replying Are you saying 8gb x 2? Enthusiast definitely looks better, list amended accordingly.
