    Change that PSU to a Corsair or Seasonic and it looks great otherwise. I would also drop the extra cash on the H80 but thats a personal preference.
  2. Thanks for your reply!!
    I'll look into those PSUs.
    I think I will get that H80.
  3. Check if your college has a deal with MSDN. You might get free Windows 7 Pro like I did.
