Yeah but you never know what youll change down the road.

He doesnt need anything big, and Ill be there to make sure theres decent airflow and cable management. And yeah an aftermarket cooler if he needs one later on.

No what I'm saying is that the case you've chosen, you wont be able to fit any 120mm coolers on it, you will run into the side of the case. You can't change the amount of airflow of a case unless you mod it. Seriously, I'm telling you this because there is a point when the case is too cheap. Even the Bitfenix Merc Beta would work great. Its usually like a $40 case. Fractal Design Core 1000/2000/3000 are also good cheap choices. Though none of those cases have any sort of cable management.

Agreed on the PSU+case. 650w is in that magic spot where it is massive overkill for a single-card setup but not quite enough for high-end SLI/XFire.

If you absolutely must cheap out on the case, at least get something with some sort of build quality like a Source 210. That Xigmatek thing is is a plastic piece of crap.

Ahhh it is pretty limited.. Didnt realize there was nothing on top.. Ill see how temperatures are after adding the fan on the side. If they arent acceptable ill do something about it. If the cougar solution was on sale I wouldve gotten it in a second. It was $19 at one point.

I only got this one because of price, to him, as long as it works and isnt too big hes happy. He doesnt care much about inside looks and as long as its decent outside.

Actually yeah, the Corsair 300r is great for the money, only like $20 more and a much much better case.

Full tower, tons and tons of cooling, decent cable management. You are just going to run into problems down the line with that case you picked.
Other then that looks good. You can always add an aftermarket cooler down the road (depending on the case you pick).

$30 over but meh.
Personally I would keep the 650 watt since its always good to have more power. But i do agree with getting a different case since I have seen that company's product quality, and its on par with a milk crate. 40-70 is what I would look to spend on the case. Some good company's to choose from would be antec, nzxt, coolermaster, corsair, and rosewill isn't too bad. The case also doesn't need to be a full tower. You really don't start needing all that space tell you move to full liquid cooling. My personal suggestion would be a coolermaster 912, or if its too pricey a nzxt 210. Though you probably know most of what I said since you have your own build. I also agree with ADHDadditiv that the build looks well put together.

Oh trust me, 550W is almost overkill for a single gpu setup (unless its a 290X or a titan/780ti, then your cutting it a little close). 650W is that crap zone, meaning its way past overkill for a single gpu setup even with overclocking, but too little to be used for a dual GPU setup. With 550W on this setup, you can overclock the CPU and GPU, you just cant go for LN2 cooling and doing the voltmod on the gpu. Oh no what will OP do?

You seem to be kinda new here, check in my sig to learn all about PSU's from our resident PSU expert Shilka.

I'm not saying it wouldn't work its just the 650 watts costs just a little bit more. That is all i meant by it.

Very true, but it is indeed waisted money so no real point. Also just as clarification, I wasn't saying your wrong or stupid or anything, I was just saying that it is important to learn about PSU's so you don't occidentally recommend someone a crappy PSU wink.gif I used to do it all the time, thankfully I smartened up.
