Advice Needed On My i5 Gaming Build

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, I'm looking to build my first computer and have chosen to build an i5 system. Below are the components that I have chosen. Please critique it and tell me what should stay and what should go. Thanks a lot guys!

Optical Drive: LG GH24LS50 $36.99 http://www.infonec.com/site/main.php...tail&id=450089
Case: Antec Nine Hundred Two $129.99 http://www.infonec.com/site/main.php...tail&id=442104
CPU: Intel Core i5-750 $209.00 http://www.infonec.com/site/main.php...tail&id=449556
Hard Drive: Western Digital Caviar Black 640 GB $81.23 http://ncix.com/products/index.php?s...20Digital%20WD
RAM: G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) DDR3 2000 (PC3 16000) - CL9 - for Core i5 $135.00 http://www.infonec.com/site/main.php...tail&id=449572
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-P55A-UD3 $155 http://www.infonec.com/site/main.php...tail&id=450201
PSU: Thermaltake Pure Power 600W $89.00 http://www.infonec.com/site/main.php...tail&id=449764
Video Card: Sapphire HD 5850 $315 http://www.infonec.com/site/main.php...tail&id=449815
Operating System: Windows 7 Home Premium 64 Bit $119.50 http://www.infonec.com/site/main.php...tail&id=449809

The total comes to $1270.71 in Canadian dollars before taxes and shipping

Again this is my first build ever and I've probably made some mistakes in choosing the components listed so far. Please feel free to critique my build and tell me what I should swap out. Is there anything I missed? Thanks a lot guys

From what I see here the stuff you have picked is pretty top notch...maybe a little bigger psu for future upgrades.. is that the only place u can order from? You cant order from new egg or tigerdirect?

Infonec isn't the only place I can order from, but I prefer it because it is a local store not too far away. I can also order from Canada Computers. Tiger Direct and New Egg is do able but I'd prefer to buy from a store front.

Is the Power Supply sufficient? I really didn't know too much. To be honest it was sort of a blind pick. Any better suggestion?

Any recommendations on a power supply for under $150? Might as well ask for it to be modular if possible.
