Current OCZ power supplies are very low rated for reliability, you might want to get a Corsair modular one or really any other quality name brand. In general its better to spend a bit on a decent power supply, its the one component that can affect every other one in your system. I'd sub out the Kingston HyperX for a Crucial M4 as well, the M4 is very mature and well backed by firmware updates. Build looks good otherwise, enjoy your new rig.

Was told the opposite on both by someone else.
Oh well, had to make a decision, and ratings and reviews is what got me those 2. I prefer Corsair Professional PSU, as I have an HX620 in my current rig, but oh well. Also, tests on the M4 compared to the HyperX - there is no contest. HyperX has better stats across the board.

Appreciate all the feedback. Pretty excited to get the parts on Monday/Tuesday. Been a while since I built one, but it is like riding a bike. Done it a million times. heheheheh
