I'm looking to order this today or tomorrow. Budget $560 ish,

TOTAL COST OF THIS BUILD $558.42 + only $4 shipping!!! WOW

QUESTION: Should I order this or go back to the drawing board? Is everything compatible here?


What for? Gaming and web work. But I am not a hard core gamer, just casual gamer, but like to play latest games.

Overclock? Probably not.
Crossfire? No, don't see the need for me.

I liked this PSU Cooler Master http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817171036

Because I get a huge discount with the case COMBO and that PSU is modular and 600W

Your sure I should not get that?
