I'm ready to pull the trigger and wanted to check with the experts to see if I'm missing anything or if there is a compatibility issue.

I have a monitor, keyboard and mouse.

Thanks for looking.

Aside from the power supply, it all looks good to me.

I'd probably look at either this Corsair CX600 V2 or this PC Power and Cooling Silencer MKIII (<-- I have this myself).

Sweet spot for SSDs is around 120GB, but if you're sure you're going to need that much space for your programs, there's nothing wrong with that size. I don't know enough about brands to suggest alternatives.

I personally hate Intel drives and will not recommend them - there's far better drives on the market that you could go with. I like the OCZ Vector but that can get really costly, the Vertex 4 is good, as is the Samsung 840. But really - do not purchase an Intel SSD.

Absolutely no on the power supply - it's one of the worst brands you could purchase. For your budget I'd suggest something like this:

Gigabye GA-970A-UD3 AM3+: $118

AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition Deneb: $85

CM HAF 912: $60

Corsair Builder Series CX600 600W: $60 before $20 rebate

CM Hyper 212 EVO: $30 before $5 rebate

Sapphire Vapor-X 100352VXSR Radeon HD 7950 3GB: $330 before $20 rebate

$663 before $45 rebates

Your stuff: $675 before $35 rebates


Why would you even remotely consider a 965 on a $900 budget? You could get a 3570K easily and still have enough money for a good 7950.
