Does it all look compatible? Or have I missed something.
Now maybe I can dust of HL2 and order Far Cry!

I know there's been some warnings about click here , But, I think I'm gonna give them a chance.
If I get burned by OC.co.uk, then I wont do anymore business with them when I spend £1500 on my PC early 2007. I'll keep y'all posted!

Others may correct me here,but i would think a bigger psu would be better,such as the 500w or more.I run a 450w on a little celeron machine and with your new set up i would think something a bit bigger would be a better choice.Like i say,i may be corrected on this,as im no expert on psu's.

Though i must say,looks a good system...hope its reliable !

Good luck

As skidzy points out a bigger PSU could well be worthwhile; however, with PSUs quality rather than quantity is the key and the price of your item alone is a good indicator of the quality.

Another factor with PSUs is weight...:-)

A good quality PSU will be much heavier in the majority of cases than a cheaper model, even though the latter may feature a higher wattage.

Whatever you decide enjoy it...
