  1. Pretty good. Why do you have 2 HDDs? Why not drop that Barracuda and get a nice SSD? +1 on that 8350, but what is your price range? I could help you refine that if I knew more info. Use the template in this thread to help you:

  2. I wouldn't recommend a coolermaster PSU. Stick with reliable brands such as Antec, Seasonic, XFX, Corsair.
  3. Oh yeah. Almost forgot about that PSU. CM makes great cases but not so much on PSUs. I reccomend this:

  4. Thanks for the feedback.

    I will be needing the two HDD's and the price range was around £1000
    I was looking at an XFX power supply anyway so i think i will go with that one(Core edition bronze 650w)

    If you have 20 more pounds to spend the gold certified version (2nd most efficient rating behind platinum) is only 100 pounds.
