  1. Anyone?
  2. That will be a pretty class build. Ready to go if you ask me.
  3. the build seems pretty solid to me, but i would recommend replacing the standard AMD cpu cooler, my friend has the exact same one and it's very loud. just look for something from zalman, and make sure the cooler is compatible with an AM3 socket

    hope this helped
  4. For your build this PSU will suffice:
    OCZ StealthXstream 500W
    https://www.aria.co.uk/Products/Components/Power+Supplies/500w+%2B/OCZ+ModXStream+Pro+500W+Modular+Silent+SLI%2FCrossfire+Ready+ATX2.2+Power+Supply+?productId=33610

    First try the AMD Stock Cooler.IF you find it noisy then only change it.
    Even if these stock coolers aren't very good when it comes to cooling but they are quiet.
  5. The PSU is overkill, a quality 500w like shubham recommended would reduce cost and make your build more efficient. If you're not OCing the stock cooler on auto will be pretty quiet. If you decide to OC at all that won't be th case.
