Default Re: my first build

Its all there.... Though the power supply is on the ..... ungood list..

You don't need 530W, So I'd drop to a 450, but up the quality. - Antec VP-450 450W ATX 12V v2.3 Power Supply

Is a great brand and great Amps.

If you don't mind waiting for rebates, - Thermaltake TR2 W0379RU 500W ATX 12V v2.2 Power Supply

Is good too.
