The PSU choice is a bit questionable. If you plan on adding a second graphics card down the road, you're good. If you'd rather stick with a single GPU system, the PSU is overkill. 500w is more than enough for any single-GPU system, with plenty of room to overclock and add components.

good luck!



+1, get some 1.5v RAM
