Any suggestions? The only thing missing is the 4+ fans and extra fan with case.

If you are planning to use the A-10k, then you should get faster ram. It makes the GPU run better. Edit: Assuming you are going to use it.

^ explains that.

For PSU:
I'd choose: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

If you can afford. It has good ratings and should last a while. Doesn't come with a power cord though. <<


at least 1600 if not 18xx memory would help

Is $10 more expensive, but the performance would be better.

(if you get that ram the heatsink you have might be too low for the heatsinks on the ram)

For the same price as your 1333 ram you can get 1600 speed ram: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=20-104-...



Are you planning to overclock? If not then you shouldn't need the cooler. I would get good thermal past though, if you don't have some.
