yes.


i got an ocz tx 750 watt

in my antec 300 case. there are brackets on the inside so i sugest you put it in before motherboard other wise it will be very tricky with some psu



i learnt as well that an antec 300 is only just big enough for a full atx motherboard. barely get fingers around edge to lower into place

OK. I probably wont be overclocking so how many watts do you think i should get, and is the rig fine?

If you get a 600w PSU you will have a lot of headroom.
I think one part of this build that is going to bottleneck it is you graphics card. You would be better off getting something like a 560 TI.
