Smile What do you think of my build?

I haven't ordered any parts yet but I want to see other peoples opinions on this $600 budget build. For gaming and a lot of multi tasking. Tell me what you think! Thanks

Get a different psu...... The 500cx isn't a great one. Corsair has let us down.

The bad thing about that psu is its pricey..... But a really really good one. Very good Amps on the 12Vs.

That's one I'd recommend in an instant.

For the record, Corsair are usually great psus, but the new cx line is icky.

Well the build went well.. it took a while but I got it all perfectly first try. The video card was DOA though so I had to put my old one in for now which sucks.. but I will just have to wait for a replacement.
