    Everything looks fine to me except maybe the CPU and PSU. I would go with a more reputable PSU company such as Antec, XFX, Seasonic, Corsair. Also get an i3 3220 because it is the latest architecture.
  2. Thanks for the advice, the 3220 is higher proformance and cheaper, as for the PSU, thanks for the advice again, I dont know what brands are "better" than others.

    I went with the CORSAIR TX Series 650W, Same price, and wattage.
