Hi
Here is my pc I'm going to buy
http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/p/2XtIm
I don't know what wastage power supply to buy and if it need to be modular or non modular. I also need to know if all my components will be compatible with Windows 8. I would really appreciate any other things you would like to comment on about my pc such as problems, cheaper websites and so on.
Thanks

Having checked your build I would urge you to change the motherboard . MSI 970 chipset boards have had issues with catching on fire . That is supposed to be fixed with the G46 but there are still reports of problems online.

Pay a little extra and get the ASUS M5A97 R2.0

The MSI board works fine with FX6300 but problems start with FX83xx if you want to change the Asus board does not have those problems.

If you OC a 6300 then the power loading is similar to an 8350 . If you try higher OC's in the 4.5 GHz range the board could be a problem . Replacing it with the much better ASUS seems like cheap insurance to me

Search on google "msi 970 G46 failures "
That should change anyones mind about buying the G46

The Asus board is the cheapest overclocking board recommended. I do not have to google the MSI board since I got the board running FX8350 at std clocks with a cooler that blows on the VRM heatsinks as well. I got it as a replacement for the G45 version (bought on first release with an X3 in anticipation of FX release) that had big issues. It has been running fine for a year even doing rendering but belief the selection of cooler is what makes it work.

I think with FX processors you should stick with 970 or 990 chip sets .

Nothing that is cheaper than the MSI G46 will be better . The MSI is already the cheapest 970 chip set mb because of its known problems .
The ASUS is only a little extra . I would compromise pretty much anywhere except the mb

This RAM

or this

would both save you the cost difference between the mb's
