    http://www.techspot.com/guides/buying/page3.html Been wanting a gaming rig for years and years. Now I'm finally going to build my own. I found this link and wanted some thoughts on whether or not it's a good build for the price/performance. Any thoughts?

    Hey there. That looks like a nice setup. :) There is one small change that I would make and that it to use a higher wattage PSU. Just to be on the safe side and in case of future upgrades that require more power. I would suggest one around 550-650w to be sure and also power supply's run at their most efficient at around 50% load.

    This would be a nice high quality power supply to go for - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...7139004&cm_re=550w_PSU-_-17-139-004-_-Product
