Is this the PSU you are referring to? If so it is a good one. Other good brands include Antec, Corsair, FSP Group, and OCZ. - SeaSonic SS-500ET Bronze 500W ATX12V v2.31 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply - Power Supplies

Everything looks good to go, mate.

AMD FX 8320 x8 Black Edition / Gelid Tranquillo / MSI 970A-G43
Sandisk Ultra Plus 128GB / Samsung 840 120GB / WD Black 750GB / WD Green 1TB / WD Red 3TB
G.SKILL Ripjaws 2x2GB DDR3 1600 - Crucial Ballistix Tracer 2x2GB DDR3 1600

I'm not sure if that is the PSU, but it is very similar.

Thanks for the help.
