DO NOT GET THAT POWER SUPPLY PLEASE. ok please don't get that powersupply coolermaster is a tier 3 power supply company and it may blow up and take your whole computer with it, instead i would get something like this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139027 .

    Thanks,
    Is this a good power supply it was recommended else where when i posted that build
    http://pcpartpicker.com/part/enermax-power-supply-enp450ast

    And what about this mobo
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157304&nm_mc=AFC-C8Junction&cm_mmc=AFC-C8Junction-_-na-_-na-_-na&AID=10446076&PID=3938566&SID=
  3. That mobo is fine, and ive never heard of that power supply company before but i thought i saw that too...
  4. My last question would be if i want to save some cost is an i3 alright or for $40 should i just stick with the i5
  5. why the one he has is beast. And its up to you the i3 would for sure be a step down from the i5 i say go with i5
