seems solid to me, great case btw.

i probably would have upgraded the graphics card for as much money as youre spending elsewhere, and i dont think the psu is the greatest, as well as it seeming to be way more watts than you need.

Possibly excessive RAM and a PSU from a less than brilliant manufacturer. Other than that, it looks pretty good.

haha yeah, the psu brand is one that i would not pick either but it was given to me so its good enough xD, wont change that untill it stops working. And for graphics card well it plays modern games for now, thats good enough for me im not the type of person that likes to play games at max, as long as they play and its not slow then its good to me haha. But thanks for your opinions.
