I would go with this PSU over the one that you have listed. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817371026

100 more watts, free shipping, and a $20 cheaper after MIR.

are you firm on amd? I love AMD as well, early to mid 2011 they are coming out with new proc and MB format.. i cant wait.

but for the time being and your budget, i think you will be much happier with something like i just built to hold me over till the new AMD stuff comes out. this was my first intel build ever.

The stuff im about to post is missing the water cooler.(because you're better off leaving it air for a month and saving for a decent cpu/vga water cooling solution) As i have this setup running @ 4.2mhz with no issues on the swiftech H20-220 Ultima XT Plus kit.

i left out the vid card but you can fit in the one you had selected and stay in budget. (I went with the evga 480)

I dont want to offend any AMD fans, because im a big one myself., But this system is so fast compared to my AMD quad core phenom ii black its crazy.
and for a gaming system its just hands down ahead right now when it comes to everything except vid cards.

but once you get the water cooling setup on this you can push it to the max.
