  1. No to the PSU in your case. it won't deliver 500w and you don't need it killing your other components.
    Go Seasonic. Corsair, XFX, Antec, OCZ (PC&C) etc
    You could probably look at a better HDD as well.
  2. You're going to need a higher-wattage PSU than 500watts.

    I'd go with something like http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817182132

    And for a case http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811147060

    For a CPU Cooler I'd go with the Hyper 212 for only $30.
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835103065

    $165 for all of this compared to $188 for your case and cooler. Saving you $23

    You could also try upgrading your cpu, but I didn't add up the total for the items you have so I don't know if there's any room.
  3. Thanks for the replies, just some questions back.

    Better as in how, and which would you recommend?

    What cpu would you suggest be the next level up, and thanks for your links already. I really appreciate the help.


    Just for future the total right now is 772 before any tax or shipping.
  4. next level cpu would probably be i5 2500k which one of the best for gaming but you would have to uprgade your motherboard to one with 1155 socket type
    as for the hard drive because the prices are so high right now you might want to consider a ssd around 120 gb or 60gb + a hard drive depending on how much storage needed and budget.
