Updated my PSU

Will that be fine?

Can I also have Heatsink recommendation?

Get something from PC Power & Cooling or Corsair. You'll regret it if your PSU dies and takes anything with it. On the other hand there is no need to buy aftermarket heatsink over stock as it seems like he will not need to OC.

I'll OC a little.

Sorry for the double post....

I am surfing through the web for CPU Cooler. I found out that because how the AM2 bracket is situated in mobos, many CPU fans would push air up and down to the case rather than toward the rear(back). Will there be noticeable temp difference between the same heatsink/fan that faces up/down and front/back?

With the Antec 300 or any other cases that has top exhaust it won't be a noticeable difference.

Well the COOLER MASTER Elite RC-332-KKN1-GP Black doesn't have top exhaust so I just want better opinion.

The mobo comes with onboard video card--HD 3300. From readings that card can handle games on medium setting like warhammer. In your opinions, how terrible is this card?

What does "SidePort Memory - onboard 64MB DDR2 800 memory" mean under onboard video card? Is can't be memory sticks, right? What's the relationship between sideport memory vs 512MB maximum memory?

for the first part, you can get mounting brackets so you can mount pretty much all heat sinks in the traditional orientation (blowing out the back of the case) on an AM2/3/+ board, OR you can get a Scythe Mugen 2, which allows up to 4 fans mounted on the heatsink, so basically, you can have it blowing in whatever orientation you wish.

The second part, you might be able to get by on the lower settings, but if you spring for that 4850 I linked earlier, you won't be dissappointed, I run a 4850 now and I have no issues whatsoever

If this computer isn't going to be used for anything like gaming, I really don't see the need for a $47 after-market cooler. If you got rid of the cooler, you might be able to upgrade the CPU or mobo just a bit. Great build, though.
