That looks like the cheapest 900mhz one you can get, so that's what I would go for you might wanna consider an 800mhz one because they are about $20 cheaper

I've never been a fan of Newegg's super-combos. They always seem to include at least one sub-par/mediocre component; in this case (as usual), the power supply.

That is a good psu. But it looks a bit over priced to be honest.

Thank You guys for your responses. I think I will take the 1000-1200 and piece together my own build. I dont want one weak link in the build.
