    Looks OK, but I'd change your PSU choice to something more reputable.

  2. I really recommend you wait for Ivy Bridge, it's only a couple of days before it comes out
  3. What about something like this? http://www.pbtech.co.nz/index.php?z=p&p=PSUCLM13042&name=COOLER-MASTER-600W-eXtreme-Power-Plus-SLI-Silent-1 and what the difference between the one I originally had? And do I need 600w or would 500 be fine?
  4. The Extreme Power Plus PSUs tend to be overrated by a significant amount. The difference is internal. It's a difference in the quality of the parts. Some cheap PSUs use Chinese capacitors which rupture after a period of use.

    So there will be a 3rd Gen i5 out soon? Do you know if it will be about same price?
