I am so sorry if I posted this in the wrong forum, I am still very new here.

I just want to start by thanking you guys. I have posted two questions my entire history here, and they have all been answered fully within just a few hours, so thank you thank you thank you! You guys really make newbies feel better about taking on problems and troubleshooting!

Ok, so my budget for this PC was about $950, and I feel like i did a decent job and picking the hardware (i am not 100% confident that I am not missing anything major, nor am I sure if its all compatible!).

GPU - 219.99
PSU - 52.00

It's not the power. It's the quality. Some power supplies have a tendency to be rated much higher than they're capable of. The result? A fried system.. or worse.

Do some research on that PSU before you make it your final decision. Remember, this thing is powering your entire system. Don't skimp on it.

Honestly my budget is a very hard $1000 so anything over that I am having to scrape the barrel, so if there are any places in the build I can cut some that would be awesome haha.

Hmm...I guess I'll just tweak it a bit. Is anything else a bit overkill? Like I know I dont really need 2tb when I would never even fill up a 500gb hdd (i only play 3 games regularly, and dont really torrent anything), and ive been told anything over 8gb is overkill..

What do you think?

ps. if you are ever in lexington nc ill totally buy you a beer for this advice i really appreciate it :)

I modified my post above. These two, from the research, look like great power supplies and are around your watt requirements and price range.
