They all fit, but the power supply isn't a great brand. I'm assuming it comes with the case?

Does it have to be tiger?

Newegg is alot better place. You also don't need to buy the case and psu together.

What are you willingt to spend on a case and psu? While cases are your own preference, the psu is like your heart... A bad psu kills your really good parts.

i would say skip the dedicated gfx card psu, just doesn't seem convenient. and at that price of that visiontek psu, you can buy a good quality psu that will power your entire rig just fine, you won't need 2.

^Huh?

To the OP. As you have it right now in your list, theres 2 power supplies. The Visiontek and one thats bundled with the case.

the visiontek is just a dedicated psu for the gfx card, it's not another whole psu.
450W Dedicated power Supply |

so i guess he was planning on using that along with the psu that came with the case. but i was saying, why doesn't he jst get 1 big, more reputable psu that will power his whole rig.
