http://pcpartpicker.com/p/H9w6

I have been trying to narrow everything down to what I want for the last 3 days, I've upped my budget about $50 to do this, can you guys suggest any weak areas I have assembled? This is my first build, So I want to make sure I have everything right. Thanks for the advice!

  1. That power supply makes me worried - choose a trusted brand like corsair, xfx, seasonic or antec (and some other specific models). Apart from that, looking good!
  2. Your CPU cooler will not fit with that RAM. You need to get low profile RAM.

    The psu is 80+ certified, so I thought that was ok. What would you recommend for around $60?

    What would you suggest I go with? Thanks for the advice.
  5. How about this corsair 600w? proabably a little too much power, so it might even be good enough to sli in the future!

    EDIT: this appears to only be 80 plus as well, my bad. This power supply is more efficient, but has a lower power rating http://pcpartpicker.com/part/corsair-power-supply-cx500

    Thanks for the advice, Do you have an idea what a good 2x4gb ram would be to fit this build?

    Corsair Vengeance LP, G.SKill Ares, Mushkin Silverline.
  8. Pretty much were almost similar on the build u want, difference is i got a gtx660 ti and a full tower case and taht CX600 psu is good, for the build u want but if you want to SLI in the future i suggest a 700+, if you want a good low profile and cheap but at the same time works well, crucial ballistix is a good choice too
  9. Are u planning to OC right away?? If not, you can save a lil bit by sticking with the heatsink fan that comes with the cpu, and maybe u can throw an extra $50 to either upgrade that gpu to 660ti or buy an SSD, is my opinion

    The ram you purchased should work fine with your target build.
