  1. it's fine
    just not sure that psu is good quality brand
  2. No, why? Crap PSU, outdated motherboard, 4GB RAM. Here's a better deal for roughly same price:

    PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant / Benchmarks

    Benefits:
    - 20% faster GPU (main component in gaming system) - http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/536?vs=681
    - More (faster) RAM, less HDD swapping (it's actually nulified)
    - H77 chipset includes more/newer features
  3. nope, there is 2x ram sticks totaling 8 gb
  4. The Corsair builder (CX) series are Channel-Well built pieces of crap, too - with the exception of the CX430, they are of poor quality.

    I recommend either grabbing the CX430 (which is plenty for your system), or stick with seasonic or seasonic-built (PC Power & cooling, XFX, upper-end corsairs). Superflower-built PSU's seem to be good as well.
  5. wow thanks for the reply guys ill follow the parts as suggested

    http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=3844172&CatId=1483

    for the psu is this good?
  6. The GS Series is also built by CWT, though is of a bit higher quality than the CX. For around that price, I would recommend XFX Pro Series 450w.

    Cases are mostly a matter of personal preference, there are many good cases to choose from and the Thermaltake will do just fine for you.

    cheers!
