Is there anything I can change to lower the price but doesn't ruin performance. More about : 1479 lot aaab January 10, 2013 11:33:03 PM Yep, Get rid of that cooler. Go with air cooling. That PSU is good, but seems very expensive. I'm sure there are cheaper options for that. aaab January 10, 2013 11:34:53 PM http://pcpartpicker.com/part/corsair-power-supply-cmpsu... this should provide more than enough power.
