This PSU is better quality and actually costs $1 less

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

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.

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.
