  1. That's a pretty solid build - the only thing I would change is that Cooler Master makes pretty horrible PSUs. Go with something like a Corsair TX750 or a Seasonic 620W instead.

    I'd also switch out your primary HD - having a 5900RPM HD for a primary will be a major bottleneck.
  2. Is there anything cheap as the one I'm using now, however better performance?
    And any Monitor Suggestions except the ones I've posted?

    You're probably looking at the Seasonic S12 II 620W: http://www.scan.co.uk/products/620w-psu-seasonic-bronze-s12ii-620-87-eff-80-plus-bronze-quiet-fan-atx

    It's a little bit more but it's a far better offering than anything from Cooler Master.

    All of those monitor choices are good - you can't go wrong with any of them. I personally like Samsung, Acer, and Asus the best.
  4. Oh I was looking at the wrong PSU, :kaola:
    That's not too much more it's nice. Thanks, would that be a good enough build to play some new games and future games on max settings?

    Does OCZ do any good PSUs? Just saw this:

    They're decent - Corsair and Seasonic will still be far better choices. Maybe try this XFX one as it's made by Seasonic: http://www.scan.co.uk/products/650w-psu-xfx-pro-series-core-edition-p1-650s-ukb9-85-eff-80-plus-bronze-sli-crossfire-eps-12v-fan-at
  6. That XFX Looks nice, however is 550W enough to power all my components or would 600w be better/no difference?

    That XFX can push a GTX 680. It's manufactured by Seasonic and has 46amps at the rail. You can push your build with a 500w psu.
