Yes you could overclock it, assuming you knew what you were doing.
Stable? That all depends.

I don't know about those 2 power supply manufacturers, but I don't usually trust lesser known brands. I would go with a solid Antec, OCZ, Corsair, Thermaltake, or something more reputable.

I would also get some OCZ, Corsair, G-Skill, or Kingston Hyper-x memory. I don't know anything about A-DATA, they might make good ram, but I have never had luck with any brand besides the top dogs.

just my 2cp

No crossfire, no overclock. Silver Power would be good enough on this computer to play video games ^^?

The Silver Power is a piece of junk, so is the Chieftec. Corsair is one of the most reputable power supply manufacturers on the planet.

Question about few products:
Silver Power 650W
Quote:
Silver Power SS650 80+ bronze, 120mm vaikne ventilaator, sleevitud kaablid, ühendused: 1 X 20+4-pin ATX, 1 X 4+4-pin CPU, 1 X 4-pin CPU, 1 X 6-pin PCI-E, 1 X 6+2-pin PCI-E, 6 X Peripheral, 1 X Floppy, 6 X SATA, 4x +12V - 18A, +12V - 52 A / 624 W .
Corsair 650W
