Hi guys! Im on vacation right now but when il be back i wanted to build a gaming pc so its my first time and i will need some help, is the PSU will be good? for this specs:

Case: Newegg.com - Thermaltake Armor Series VA8000BWS Black Aluminum / Steel ATX Full Tower Computer Case - Retail

PSU: Newegg.com - OCZ GameXStream OCZ600GXSSLI ATX12V 600W Power Supply 100 - 240 V CB/CE/CSA/UL/FCC - Retail

Motherboard: 1 of Intel X38 motherboards (comes out around september)

Yes to the PSU, and Yes to the GFX, eVGA is one of, if not the best out there.

Someone did their research.

Looks like a good build. But I would suggest the Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 320GB hard drive instead. It's cheaper too.
