Whats wrong with the ram I have picked out? It's cheaper and its 1600...I am really just trying to cut pennies because I really was'nt suppose to even go over 400, that's why I have a 40 dollar power supply.
Whats wrong with the PSU?
Do you have any other suggestions for a psu that is cheap and modular because I have a clear case?

RAIDMAX is complete junk. It is going to give you more headaches and will probably take out other hardware when it dies.I don't know of any cheap modular PSU with led but here is a good PSU for cheap http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
