speakers, maybe some extra fans 350w really might not be enough ever since i got my new cpu it keeps restarting till i got a bigger power supply so i might go with like 400-450 the more the better

I would go wiht corsair memory instead of kingston, try www.tigerdirect.com for it. Pay about the same price but they are better quality.

no, you can either get the same case and buy an extra PSU to install into it, or just look for another case with a better PSU, if you have the money, do whatever you want =) and corsair's the ****!

in the case areana one case is as good as the next, as long as it fullfills your needs, as much as power, and hold the fans you want to put in it. Other than that it comes down to looks.

You might want to buy a case that has no "included" power supply, so that you can buy a good PSU, that you will be happy whih, instead of the PSU that they package with the case.

The power supply that I bought, and am very happy with is the Enermax EG465P-VE FM, 460 Watt.

It is $99 at the website where you got your other parts;
