Ultra PSUs are a half tick above what I left in the toilet this morning.
Good analogy, Trotter.

+2 A cheap PSU can easily and severely kill your whole system you just bought.

This memory is blue, per your request, and it is faster than the red version. - G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL8D-8GBXM

While some Kingwin power supplies are actually quite good, I wouldn't buy the one your looking at. I mainly wouldn't buy it because it has (4) 12v rails, if I was really on a budget I might buy a power supply with a (2) 12v rails but you really want a single 12v rail power supply.

In your price range this is the best power supply available. - CORSAIR Enthusiast Series CMPSU-650TX 650W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Compatible with Core i7 Power Supply

If you want a Modular power supply then this is only $99.99 after a rebate. - CORSAIR Professional Series HX650 (CMPSU-650HX) 650W ATX12V v2.2 / EPS12V 2.91 SLI Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply

and for the PSU im not gonna get it i tihnk im gonn get this one "Kingwin LAZER 660W Power Supply"
1. RAM clock speed does matter
2. Listen to Trotter
3. We are not debating. You asked for advice and then shot the advice down. We are not new to computers. Your posts all emphasize you are relatively inexperienced with computers. Show a little respect, please.
4. Even the text you type has a condescending tone. I really hate to think how you would come across in person.

Have a great day!

Nothing wrong with PSUs with multiple rails.
