:welcome: Joe Blerb

Two things of note;

The PSU is not powerful enough for the add on video card, XFX recommend a minimum output of 750W, see specs here

Your aftermarket cooler, a very important thing I must make you aware of is that you do not need the additional heatsink and CPU fan and if you did use it you would void your CPU warranty both AMD and Intel are clear on this, see below;

AMD;

This Limited Warranty shall be null and void if the AMD microprocessor which is the subject of this Limited Warranty is used with any heatsink/fan other than the one provided herewith.

Full AMD article @ http://support.amd.c...earLimited.aspx

Intel;

damage to the Product due to external causes, including accident, problems with electrical power, abnormal electrical, mechanical or environmental conditions, usage not in accordance with product instructions, misuse, neglect, alteration, repair, improper installation, or improper testing;

Full Intel article available @ http://www.intel.com...b/cs-009862.htm

Thanks for the suggestions! So if I upgrade the PSU and ditch the aftermarket cooler, will the build all be compatible? Thanks!

Yes the rest of the parts are all fine :thumbsup:

If this is purely for gaming 8GB of Ram will suffice but if you will be rendering video, doing 3D modelling or CAD you should have 16GB of Ram as a minimum.

You are welcome btw :)
