Additional Comments: I'm buying a gaming PC for around 2000$ ,I also need to get stuff like a mouse and keyboard so I'd rather have some money left over to get them if possible but if not I can just get them later. I have a some specs I was working on and wanted to ask for some advise on it, is it a good build, is there something you think I should change, are any of these parts bad combinations? You know general critique and suggestions. It's also worth noting that I'd prefer parts available at the Orleans branch of Canada computers if possible ( it should say on the site what branches the product is available in)

  1. I use an 850W Corsair HX model. I picked it because it uses detachable Cables. you only plug in what you use. With your build, I'd go 850-1000w.
