My budget is somewhere around $750-850. I would just like some input on what I have selected. I already have a Pioneer DVD-RW drive, and a 1TB external HD, so the internal 320GB should be fine.
Some specific questions I have:
Is everything compatible (so far, to me, it looks like it is)?
Am I fine with the specific Mobo, CPU, and video card I have selected? Do any of you have any gripes with them?
Is the Corsair PSU a good choice, and is 550W enough?
Am I missing anything that I would need when building this?
