  1. Not good for the $. Get a PSU by XFX, Seasonic, Corsair (TX or HX), or PC Power and Cooling, Rosewill (only HIVE and Capstone, maybe Green).
  2. Is this computer for gaming? If so, then you have some adjustments to make. Gaming reqiures mostly a strong GPU, so I would get a slightly cheaper case and drop the SSD. Another thing is that the power supply you picked sucks.

    Nope, thats definetly not a good build, check my signature builds, pick the one you like and we can make a few modifications if we have too, btw...whats your exact budget?

    I also recomend that you drop the SSD for now... The SSD is not as important as a strong GPU
  5. Pick a cheaper case, such as this one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811146075 (it also comes in white)
    Sure, it doesn't look that fancy, but with the money you saved, you can invest in a better PSU and video card. It's the stuff on the inside that counts.
  6. Thanks for all the suggestions guys yeah I'll definitely pick up a cheaper case and my budget is around 700-900 and I don't plan on gaming (minecraft, starcraft 2) that much mostly 1080p movies and tv shows.

    is this a better build then?
