Can't quite put my finger on it but I think it's lacking something

Default Re: Need Opinions

you need a hard drive or ssd and a dvd drive
and copy of windows?

might i recommend
Newegg.com - CORSAIR Enthusiast Series TX650 V2 650W ATX12V v2.31/ EPS12V v2.92 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC High Performance Power Supply

instead of the ocz psu.

watch the case. it's a full tower. full towers are very large. a mid tower is usually plenty big enough even for people that have a lot of stuff to put in there.

I'm getting Windows, the hard drive and the optical drive for free. And I know the case is big but I'm planning to upgrade in the future so I just wanted to have plenty of room to work with.

But would you say the rest of the build is fine?

Rig seems ok to me besides the OCZ PSU. GPU is weak.

Ya I think I might go with that cosair PSU that someone else posted. For the GPU I'm planning to just get that one for now, and then when I have a little bit more spending money I'll buy a second one and run them together.
