Do NOT use that power supply with that rig. Spend about $80 on a good PSU that won't blow up on you. That PC will be pretty powerful, and it's going to need a powerful PSU.

The thing with the Biostar is that you'd need a Vdimm mod for it to go higher I believe. And if you're not familiar on how to do that, then I'd highly suggest getting the GIGABYTE DS3, cost a little more but it will overclock a lot higher than the Biostar, specially with an E6300.

That one is most likely to weak for that system. Try something like this:

Yes, it costs a bit more, but it costs less than replacing half your parts when a cheap-o PSU blows and kills your components.

Wintec Ampo ram isn't well known for being very good ram. What is your budget for ram? If can afford them I would get these Buffalo Firestix. Good overclockers especially for the price.

I'm pretty sure that the Buffalo Firestix are no longer D9.
As for a cheap power supply this one looks good (specwise for the price), but beware I know nothing about its reliability.

Hipro makes some good stuff. The only problem with the DS3 though is the fact that it doesn't have any memory dividers to my knowledge.

It doesn't have dividers to go downwards, only upwards.

2.00 is the lowest it goes, which is 1:1
