It would help if you edit your post to get rid of everything that says "none" for the listed device.

It would also help if you use punctuation and white space like this.

That being said, what are the other PSU options? I see you increased to Raidmax 1000, what did you increase from?

Is there any particular reason you didn't get 2x 4GB RAM? What OS do you plan on using with these parts?

If you want me to advise you about special deals about free games then post links to them.

I need more information about the case to tell you if it is good or not, as far as I can tell there are about a dozen cases close to that description from that company.

Cyberpower charges too much for 8gb of RAM so i stuck with the default they give me. The psu is upgraded from standard 400 watts I believe I could get a coolermasterr 1000watt for 50 more. The case if you copy and paste the case name in Google a YouTube vid of it is being reviewed. For the OS I was going to get a pirated version of windows or Linux. Noob here don't know how to post link but its called a just cause 2 game coupon if you buy a NVIDIA gpu. I thought this build was a good deal espically since I get a 32gb ssd for free its normally 71 bucks but you get a mir for 71 making it free. I hope this helps you help me buddy

Does this look like the right case?

If it is that case then it is a bottom mount PSU and its fine.


What other options are there between the standard 400w and the Raidmax 1000w?


If you want to play games I wouldn't get Linux if I were you. WINE can wrap DX calls in OpenGL, but it may not work and if it does work it will have performance reduced.

I also can't advise you to get pirated windows either.

That isn't the point, though. I need to know if the OS is going to be 32 bit or 64 bit, because it matters a lot for which RAM you can use.

I googled the just cause 2 game coupon thing and I didn't see anything that said you could use it to get Skyrim or BF3 instead.

It is nice to be able to get even a 32 GB SSD for free, that is true.

Anyway, the whole thing doesn't look too bad.
