Default First Build. Would appreciate input

I am doing my first build and was just wanting people's comments on it or if i should get different components than the one's I picked out. Thanks - Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, Digital Cameras and more! - Western Digital Caviar Black WD1001FALS 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drives - Internal Hard Drives - G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1066 (PC2 8500) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model F2-8500CL5D-4GBPK - Desktop Memory

I still don't know which power supply to get. So if anyone could point me in the right direction, it would be great.

For that setup, a quality 450-500W psu will be more than enogh, with room to add more drives and a gpu.

PSUs shouldn't be skimped on, so a Corsair, Power and cooling, Silverstone brands are very good.

We here recommend Corsairs alot, as the prices care great and qualities top.

You need a case too, and a dvd drive btw.

Foldie = i7 950@ 4.0Ghz Gigabyte x58a-ud3r EVGA 970 SC Corsair H100 Corsair hx520 3x2gb OCZ Gold Corsair 650D
Woohoo = L5639 @3.1Ghz EVGA SR-2 gtx 260-216 Hyper 212+ Corsair 1050hx 6x2gb Corsair XMS3 Blackhawk Ulra
Alienware 18 - SLI 770M 4700mq 16Gig

In that wattage range, Antec is good to save some cash. The Antec 300 and PSU deal is always good.

This one is pretty nifty. - Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, Digital Cameras and more!

Doing good on the components so far.
