    You might want to add a CD/DVD drive so you can install Windows.

    Whats difference between PSU's?

    Also I have a CD drive in my current computer that I was going to be using. As well as Windows 7 Ultimate.
  3. When purchasing computer parts the last thing you want to skimp on is the PSU. Personally, I will pay twice as much to get a quality unit. Corsair and Seasonic are my favorite brands but they are not the only good brands out there. I don't really trust Thermaltake for PSU's. They don't usually get the best reviews.
  4. Here's alsmost the same build but with a much better GPU. Have a look:

    CPU & HDD: $145- Intel Celeron G850 & WD Cavier Blue 500GB

    Case & PSU: $81- CM GX450 & CM Elite 430 (A better and reliable PSU)

    Motherboard: $50- Biostar H61

    RAM: $23- GSkill NS 4GB

    GPU: $145- XFX Radeon 6850

    Total(Excluding Rebates): 444 USD

    Rebates: $35
  5. I want the red setup. Which is a big reason why I chose a lot of what I have been choosing.

    I will Upgrade PSU but as far as everything else Im happy with the build.
