your link is secure we cant see it.
NVM lol
two things:
i would have gone different PSU.
and different card. diamond only carries a 1 year warranty.
otherwise, tight build.

ok ty for your input
Can I ask you why would you choose a different PSU ?
Regarding the Card - There's only few manufacturers that make this as of right now and DIAMOND has rebate on it, therefore making it the cheapest version
And I'm already over my budget so I was pretty much forced to pick that one.

Get a 750TX for half the price.

Corsair TX 750W ATX 12V Power Supply - CMPSU-750TX - Buy.com

$83 after $20 MIR yet a bit superior to the PSU you have listed. Not modular though.

nice build. going to be very fast.
all though go with the 640gb version of the hdd is is only like 10 more bucks i think and it is faster

exactly the reason for the PSU. buy it (its better) and invest the rest in a card with a better warranty. sapphire and most others have 2 years, visiontek has lifetime, but their customer support blows balls supposedly.

Would POWERCOLOR be any better than DIAMOND ?
I think Icould get the Powercolor if I went with this PSU

visiontek is 10 dollars more and has a lifetime warranty. i'd do that. thats a serious investment. if it was an 80.00 graphics card, different story.
