The PSU is a very good quality, if you're not running a big gpu or stuff like that, it should be fine. Get a Hyper 212+ or a Core-Contact Freezer instead of the prototype Thermaltake. And lastly, pick up a Corsair or Intel SSD instead of the OCZ, I've had terrible experiences with that company.
im using the Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium Fatal1ty right now in my old pc so im just gonna use that + it looks cool... and im gonna be using these headphones outside with my ipod and i dont want to wear some ugly fat looking headphones outside and the headphones and price i picked are fine http://www.shopbot.ca/m/?m=SteelSeri...ckband+Headset

stop talking about the headphones because im not changing it and i will also not change the mouse and keyboard

If that is all you play you'll be good to go. The stuff you have is pretty decent, just a couple tips:
- The X-Fi Titanium is good, but not worth the Fatal1ty (a bit hypocrital as i have the older sibling ). Just get the regular Titanium, or get a Xonar with a built-in amp if you plan to use headsets. Nvm, you already have it
- OCZ SSD's have had lots of problems with functionality and RMAing (no personal experience, but too many horror stories around), i'd advise to use a Corsair or Intel SSD instead.
- As for storage HDD's, i'd get Western Digital Blue/Black, or Samsung Spinpoints. Seagate is not a trustable brand for HDD's in my eyes (never got a bad WD or samsung drive in the last 4 years, and i've ruined 2 Seagate in the same period)
- I keep my advice of using a CM 212+. It's available now, it's the best price/performance cooler available, and you won't have any issues with other devices.

Has anybody read the review done by OCNs very own el gappo, Gigabyte A75-US4H + A8-3850 Overclocked Review

Clearly shows that games can be played at Max Quality even if these arnt 100% new games its still pretty amazing so i hope everyone means low-med settings on Brand spanking new games..... Im sure it can play CS 1.6 and CS:S at Highest Quality.

This makes me even more excited to see how Powerful Trinity, The Bulldozer APU will be

Bulldozer-based Trinity will be an APU.

I think what you listed there looks good to me. I would however recommend this http://www.canadacomputers.com/produ...item_id=040036 over the kingston. It's a bit more expensive, but I am pretty sure it's worth it.

Enough with the trolling & such discussion, or further action will be taken.
Next year's Trinity APU will use the same FM1 socket if I am not mistaken. Drop in upgrade.
