    I would consider getting 4GB(2x2) matched pair of RAM as 8GB is a waste of money if the main purpose of this machine is gaming as games(and most apps) will never use 8GB.

    Cooler Master GX series of PSU's isn't the best around, I would go with a better quality unit such as this: http://www.mwave.com.au/sku-3404073...eries_Power_Supply_-_ATX12V_v2_31_amp_EPS12V_

    You don't want to skimp on your PSU, it's the most critical part in your system.

    Everything else looks good.

    here is the list of all the power supply options it gives me. For some reason I'm blind and I can't see the Corsair TX-750 V2 750W... :/

    I don't know why it's not in this list but I provided a link in my post.

    Anyway, if you must choose from that list, go with the Corsair HX 650W if your budget can handle it, it'll do the job as well.

    You really like Corsair don't you :D - Anyway thanks man. I just have a question, wouldn't a higher WATT PSU be better?

    It's not a matter of what I like. Corsair are the highest quality PSU's from this list. Yes, higher wattage would be better but as I said, the Corsair one is the only one I would recommend from this list. 650W would still handle your system well.
