  1. All looks good but I'd switch out that PSU with this: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817703027

    Otherwise everything looks good! I say go for it.
  2. Looks great go for it everything is compatible
  3. Does the CAD stand for Canadian dollars or AutoCad? If it's Autocad then you want an Nvidia card and not an AMD card.
