Default [New Build]Want some feedback on a Med/High Performance budget built - 100% complete just need feedbacl

Hey guys - I've done my research and I've pretty much got my list 100% complete. I'm just looking for come compatibility feedback and maybe suggestions. here it is

Athlon II X3 450 + BIOStart A880G+ Mobo Combo Newegg.com - Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, LED LCD TV, Digital Cameras and more! $109.99

Case Rosewill Blackbone Black Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case Newegg.com - Sentey Slim Series SS1-2422 Flex Slim Case 450w 2x Fan/ 2 x USB / Piano Black Paint / Micro ATX $34.99

PSU Antec NEO ECO 400C 400W Continuous Power ATX12V 2.3 / EPS12V 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Power Supply Newegg.com - Antec NEO ECO 400C 400W Continuous Power ATX12V 2.3 / EPS12V 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Power Supply $34.99

HDD SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3 HD103SJ 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive Newegg.com - SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3 HD103SJ 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive $55.00

Memory G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Desktop Memory Model F3-10666CL9D-8GBRL Newegg.com - G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Desktop Memory Model F3-10666CL9D-8GBRL $79.99

CD/DVD ASUS DVD Burner - Bulk - OEM Newegg.com - ASUS Black 24X DVD+R 8X DVD+RW 12X DVD+R DL 24X DVD-R 6X DVD-RW 12X DVD-RAM 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-R 32X CD-RW 48X CD-ROM 2MB Cache SATA 24X DVD Burner - Bulk - CD / DVD Burners $16.99

OS Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit 1-Pack for System Builders - OEM Newegg.com - Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit 1-Pack for System Builders - Operating Systems $99.99

All for $431.94 (not bad IMO).

The PSU is a 400W, rated 80%+... will that be enough to power everything safely? Is there any combatibility issues I should look at?
Or Is this a safer upgrade: Newegg.com - Antec EarthWatts Green EA-430D Green 430W Continuous power ATX12V v2.3 / EPS 12V 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply...

On another forum (X3 Core, 8GB 1333 RAM, etc - Compatible? Missing anything? [NEW BUILD] - New-System-Build - Homebuilt-Systems - sorry if this isn't allowed) - the guy suggested that the 400W ECO 400 Antec would be fine, I would just like a second opinion.

Thanks!

I'm not sure if a normal psu will fit inside that case, you might need like a micro atx one if you plan on replacing the one that comes with the case.

As pointed out, the case won't fit the psu, and the case does come with a 450W.

Looking at the pictures, of the case at the companies website SS1-2422 - Sentey, it looks like a regular power supply will work. And I would definitely go with the Antec power supply over the cheap one that comes with the case.

You know what... he's got the rockwell and links to a sentey... Wonder which it is.

Slay youre right... the egg pics look tiny... but the video on the site shows theyre big.
