The 9400GT is a really crappy GPU if you have any intention of modern gaming @ high settings..

That GPU doesn't require a power connector, so you really don't have to worry about not being able to run something because of lack of PSU Power... but if you really game, I think you should consider at least an HD 4650

Unless you really like music, or your mobos really crappy, dont get a sound card.

Also..... my main rig is only powered by a 700W psu...... 800 is way ovekill unles youre running dual 285s.

I ran my rig on a 520hx for a bit.. its all about the Amps.

I think before you buy any more you need to rethink your now, near future and "future" needs.

I run my system on a 520hx just fine with no problems as well.
