I would suggest at least this as PSU

And grab this GPU

http://www.microcenter.com/product/417324/Neutron_Series_550W_PS2_ATX_Power_Supply Does this work? It's a bit less.

I don't really like to skimp on the PSU. It's an important part and to be honest, the antec one is the lowest one I would put in any rigs.
I cannot find any review of that PSU you found and I could not recommend it's purchase.

A PSU is the heart of your system, it should be reliable and efficient. This one looks weird to me.
I would recommend getting a lower priced GPU and the antec PSU I found.

I'm running a cheapo XFX power supply that has my sig rig on it. It runs at close to full load. I'm kind of waiting for it to explode on me. If you aren't really experienced/expecting it. I wouldnt skimp on the power supply either.


But now i'm kind of waiting for an explosion in my house. I guess insurance would buy me a new pc?

Since you are using deals from microcenter I would go with your build, since it's a $300 build, it's pretty thight budget, you got the CPU,MB,RAM,GPU,PSU, you are missing an optical drive and an hard drive along with a computer case.
