Default Any problems forseen with this build?

Hello all,

I'm venturing out and going to build my first PC.

I want it for gaming, movies, and internet. Games i play are modern warfare 2, bad company 2, Starcraft 2, etc.

My budget is right about $1000 and was gonna go with this: - Thermaltake V3 Black Edition VL80001W2Z Black SECC / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - ASRock H55M Pro LGA 1156 Intel H55 HDMI Micro ATX Intel Motherboard - EVGA 01G-P3-1371-TR GeForce GTX 460 (Fermi) 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card - XCLIO STABLEPOWER 500W 500W ATX Active PFC Power Supply - Intel Core i5-750 Lynnfield 2.66GHz 8MB L3 Cache LGA 1156 95W Quad-Core Processor BX80605I5750 - nMEDIAPC ZE-C68 All-in-one USB 2.0 Card Reader w/ USB Port - CORSAIR XMS3 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model CMX4GX3M2A1600C9 - SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3 HD103SJ 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive - LITE-ON Black 4X BD-ROM 8X DVD-ROM 32X CD-ROM SATA Internal 4X Blu-ray Reader Model iHOS104-06 - Blu-Ray Drives - Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit 1-Pack for System Builders - Operating Systems - Cooler Master Intel Core i5 compatible Hyper TX3 Socket 775/1156/AMD 130W 92mm "heatpipe direct contact" CPU Cooler RR-910-HTX3-G1

My logitech G19 and MX revolution, and is going to be paired with a 23" HDMI capable monitor.

I am 100% open to comments/criticism as this will be my first build ever.

Everything looks good except for that Power Supply.
I'm not so sure about it, I would go for something like this instead. - OCZ ModXStream Pro OCZ500MXSP 500W ATX12V V2.2 / EPS12V SLI Certified CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply compatible with core i7


I mean maybe your choice is nice I don't know, but that's kind of my point. Antec, OCZ, Thermaltake, Corsair etc etc are known to be very reliable and even exceed their specs. Other power supplies are known to die quickly and perform far worse than advertised.

I'd second Richs psu choice.

A build like yours, i'd not want to cheap out on a psu and possibly destroy the other components.
