Thanks for the input! I don't think i'll be changing the gpu or cpu due to the fact that they are in a great combo deal. My question is on the reasoning for the 550W psu, that's the part I had the most trouble when researching upon.

I would stay away from Rosewell PSUs but the feedback on the 2 i looked at seem that majority of them worked good so its up to you I would go for either Antec, OCZ, PC Power & Cooling, SilverStone (not in any order)
