sorry, i cannot view youtube at the office, but for 400 bucks, i don't think it would be a powerhouse (or is it actually a brand? sorry not familiar).

my gpu is almost $500 already

I think he meant it's a powerhouse for it's value. 130$ for GPU and CPU which can run some games is actually awesome. I'm looking forward to buy it for my home pc

I wouldn't touch a coolermaster PSU with a 20 foot pole. Would be much better to get a corsair cx430.

This will blow away the build in the video:

It really wouldn't be "blown away" by any stretch. Not really sure why the case is better, its a trivial thing to point out. The power supply you chose is just as good as the Cooler Master. You really aren't basing any of this off of facts, my friend. The CM PSU I selected has fantastic reviews and I infact know someone with a great CM PSU. Just because you may have had a bad experience with the company doesn't deem it bad. I also picked double the storage all from a place with higher prices for shopping ease. I'm sure if I picked the components from four different retailers I could have made some gains with the money saved.
