Just wanted you guys to take a look at this going to be buying within the next few days.
couple things i wanted to know.

Is the mobo OK? i know its not very expensive but this isn't really a super power build.
Think this psu will support the hardware? also is it a reputable brand?
Any other things you would change? or problems with the build?

  1. That psu isn't that good : http://www.jonnyguru.com/modules.php?name=NDReviews&op=Story5&reid=231

    It will definitely power the whole system, but it might be better going with another psu at that price range : http://pcpartpicker.com/part/corsair-power-supply-cmpsu430cxv2

    The rest is fine, for the price it's good.
