So, I'm thinking of building a Pc, instead of getting... This

And so far here is my list of parts :

http://www.novatech.co.uk/novatech/prods/barebones/Nova... -Barebone Bundle with CPU, Mobo, RAM, Case and PSU.

http://www.novatech.co.uk/novatech/specpage.html?NOV -550 -Palit GTX 550 ti 1GB

http://www.novatech.co.uk/novatech/specpage.html?SG-712... -500GB HDD

http://www.novatech.co.uk/novatech/specpage.html?MS-7H6... -Windows 7 Home Premium OEM

Im not sure if the 400W PSU can handle all of this though, what do you think?

Can you use some XP? That would leave more room for the parts.

Novatech do some great deals on bundles - however I have always found i nthe past that the weak element of their bundles is the PSU.

You really need to be asure that ANY PSU is a good brand item and have sufficient AMPs onthe 12 volt rails. Some video cards place a huge drain on the PSU an any minor fault or fluctuation could be disasterous for your PC.

I would also consider a pre-built or barebone deal from www.overlcockers.co.uk - who again build some great value bundles / barebones.
