Your psu is wayyyy overkill for that build but it's free, everything is fine though what's your budget do we can help you get the best price and hardware

Yes I know it is. My budget is around $600. I heard that the PSU doesnt actually come near 750w, but instead around 600. im a little nervous from what Ive heard about it. People are saying dont hook it up to anything of value, becuase it will fail. Possibly fry my motherboard..

thermaltake generally has a bad reputation however if its free and that's your budget take it. you will be NOWHERE near its wattage limit, and its actually not a bad PSU. there's more details in the review below you can look at, I just linked to the conclusion page

Thanks for the link to the review.. I was a little worried, but I think it should be fine. I guess its better to be above the wattage limit, than below. hehe
