Helping a friend build a computer. Just thought I would check in with you guys, see what you think about the build so far. If you know of any deals, combo's or anything that would save us some money that would be awesome. I have checked for compatability of most of the parts, but if anyone notices anything wrong it would be awesome if you could let me know. Thanks ahead of time.

Couple of pointers for you swap the PSU for a better brand such as Antec, Corsair or Seasonic ( my suggestion http://www.newegg.co...N82E16817139021 ) and are you aware of the CPU - DVD burner combo deal available until the end of the month http://www.newegg.co...N82E16819106009

Some PSU guidance;

Was not aware of the combo. I actually have that same PSU in another computer I have, however I thought I remembered rosewill being reputable so I thought I would go with that since the one I have on here is modular. I guess I will just go with that corsair one since I have had it for about a year and no problems so far.

Thanks for the response.

If you wish to stick with a modular PSU ( I am not a fan of them ) here is a good quality 750W from another reputable brand http://www.newegg.co...N82E16817341052

Nothing, just wondering what you guys think about the parts for the prices. Or if you know of any other deals that I might have missed.
