You could go with a 80+ Gold PSU for more reliability of course :)

No, it will only effect the reliability of your PC, the higher the grade, the better but to keep costs down, gold is better :)

80 plus rating has nothing to do with reliability. There are 80-plus gold PSUs that are junk and there are 80 plus bronze units that are good. 80 plus is simply an efficiency rating.

That PSU is very low quality and a potential danger to the rest of the system. The PSU is not a good place to skimp and not a lesson you want to learn the hardway. If needed drop the CM 212 and use the stock Intel cooler and use that money to get a better quality PSU. A good quality 430w PSU could run those specs with no problem. Here's a couple reccomendations.

What bignastyid said.
Rating does not equal quality.
@OP, there are some very poor quality component choices in there, what is your budget?
If you are overseas, what retailers are you using?
I suggest you unselect the best answer by the way, not solved yet, it'll help more people get on this thread.

Well that's a great PC for the first build, better than mine for sure, the only thing I would say is I would have gone with a 250 gigabyte ssd and Two, Three or maybe even four terabyte hard drive just so I have that extra storage and don't have to worry about slowing down.
 


Aaaay, i'm half Malaysian. :p
What retailers are you using?
