I see you still went with the 700W power supply. I guarantee you will be able to put a lot, and I mean a LOT of work on that thing and it won't come close to maxing out. But atleast you are set for any big upgrades.

Enjoy your new system once you have everything and can put it all together.

He will have to change it to another model/brand, the gamstreams have been known to have ripples, and besides for 150 USD he can get this. Far better.
Newegg.com - SILVERSTONE SST-ST75ZF ATX 12V 2.2 & EPS12V 750W Power Supply 100 - 240 V OCP,OVP,SCP,NLO - Retail
or
Newegg.com - SILVERSTONE OP650 ATX 12V 2.2 & EPS12V 650W Power Supply 100 - 240 V RoHS, FCC, CE - Retail
Or
PC Power and Cooling 610 Silencer.

Most definitely take any of those over a gamestream...

Hopefully when I get everything, I won't have any trouble putting it together. What I am worried about is getting something that is DOA and trying to find out what it is.

I will no doubt be back here asking for more help once I start putting it together. I just can't wait to get everything

I would highly advise you stray away from companies like Dealiverable.com and instead stick to places like microcenter, clubit, newegg, tigerdirect, and zipzoomfly.

Yeah, I am going to stay away from Dealiverable.com from now on. I learned my lesson the hard way. I will try those other websites.

Looks like I am going to have to wait till they come back in stock or bite the bullet and pay around $250 or more for it.
