well, its not my rig, so knock yourself out.

but i still insist on an SSD.

trolling an adult is very dangerous, don't try it at home nor at work. you don't want to play tag with a rabid man.

Avoid LC-Power PSUs. They are among the worst of the worst, especially if you want to use your computer for gaming and overclocking. For an office PC, an LC-Power PSU would probably be ok.

The virtuous spirit has no need for thankful approval, owning a certain conviction that what has been done is right.

What do You think about this PC specifications that I want to buy..

CPU: AMD FX-6300
GPU: Gigabyte GTX 750Ti 2GB GDDR5
Motherboard: ASUS M5A97 R2.0
RAM: HyperX 8GB Fury DDR3 1600MHz
HDD: WD 500GB - 1TB
Case: MS Ranger (probably)

TOTAL: cc $450 + LC Power LC-CC-120


TOTAL: $500
It looks good, as long as overclocking isnt a big deal. The 4 phase VRMs wont be able to handle much of an OC. If you arn't OCing, then it looks good.

I'd also recommend getting an SSD instead of an HDD, and putting the HDD from your optiplex into the new machine for extra storage until you can afford to get either a bigger SSD or an HDD.

Even if the SSD is only big enough to hold the OS, it is worth it.

If you DO want to overclock, the asus 970 pro gaming is only 10-15$ more, and has a 7 phase VRM for the CPU. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813132713

the best one with a decent $/GB is samsung's 850 EVO, the 250GB and 500GB are both worth it.
the next one would be Crucial's MX200, the 250GB and 500GB are both worth it.

other than those, you'll need to check reviews for specific perks.
perks you should look for is high mixload performance, low access latency, and good power-failure tolerance.

if you're behind a line-conditioned outlet (e.g. a UPS or AVR) sure.
also they're very notorious for having output voltages far off the standard.

at that budget, you can pretty much pick up any of the more popular PSUs.
