  1. Your budget is? CM is terrible PSU maker. Get a Corsair, XFX or Seasonic PSU.
  2. our budget is 450.00
  3. What's the goal here? Are you going for gaming or just for general use?
    ^That PSU, or even Corsair's CX430, would be good.
  4. +1 on a better PSU, and great idea father/son build!
  5. well general use mostly. Internet some watching dvds, dvd ripping, burning, converting dvd to avi. word prossesing and power point.
  6. The 430's definitely fine, then: no need to leave room for a powerful graphics card.
