The power supply is overkill but I found a deal to get it for the same price as the 1000W version.

I am not concerned about making the system cost less.
Is there anything that looks out of place here or just plain wrong?

Thank you for your time.

  1. Thats a pretty expensive motherboard are you sure you need that?

    Also the HDD is a green type which means its slower than the average HDD go with a Seagate Barracuda or Samsung Spinpoint F3 @ 7200 RPM

    Most perfer the Crucial M4 SSD as well it has been one of the most reliable SSDs out there
  2. I would change the power supply to get a better quality one such as Corsair HX 1050W Silver

    or OCZ ZX 1250W Gold

    The OCZ ZX series has great reviews from various professional PSU review sites such as jonnyguru and others. According to jonnyguru, the quality is comparable to Seasonic X series and Corsair AX series which are the best in its class.
