How many watts would you suggest? I was thinking 400? And does anyone else have any opinions on the setep I posted? I will most likely be buying everything today so if you have something to say do it soon lol.

400 would be a minimum. I would go for 500, though... just in case you decide to add in a decent card later.

I'll suggest the ASUS, they have great tech support (BIOS updates, and such), and "decent" customer support. Haven't had much Gigabyte products, at least not enough to get into their support too much.
