1. My main concern is about the power supply. I tried using a power supply calculator and I really could not figure it out. So I really don't know if its the right amount of wattage. I am pretty sure it has the right cables needed but still not sure. Also I heard something about 12V rails on the power supply. I have no clue what that means and if it is important.
2. My second concern is the video card and the case. The video card is 9.25 inches long while I think the case can only hold a 12 inch card at max. Also I know that the hard drive bay can be removed to get more space for the video card. I do not want to do this because I want my hard drive to be placed in the case securely. So if someone could inform me if the length of the video card would be a problem with putting other hardware in it, the video card would not fit at all, or if the hard drive could be placed somewhere else securely if the hard drive bay were removed.
3. My third concern is the optical drive. I know what OEM means for the operating system but what does it mean for optical drives? Is it worse than a regular optical drive?
4. All of these items can be found Tigerdirect except the monitor which can be found at Newegg.
5. And lastly I would just like to know if all these components would be compatible with each other.
Thanks in advance for your help.
EDIT: My intended use is gaming.
EDIT: I was also wondering if I should get a aftermarket fan or if my CPU's original fan would be good enough. The reason I would get an aftermarket fan is that the CPU's original fan is too loud or doesn't cool the processor adequately. I know you can't have both a silent fan and a good cooling fan so somewhere in between there would be a good thing if its recommended I get an aftermarket fan.
EDIT: My budget is like $1200-$1300 but the cheaper, while still getting quality components, the better.
If I were to ditch the AMD build and got the i5-2500k @ 4ghz, how much would that cost around? Also how many other components would I have to change about my build? Where do I find the i5-2500k @ 4ghz to buy?
The i5-2500k costs the same as the 8150, but if you're near a microcenter (check www.microcenter.com ), you get it at $180+tax and $50 off a Z68/Z77 Motherboard (which means you'd only need to change one more thing: the board).
