I didn't see a budget number.

No disrespect, but that antec kinda blows, 400w with only 70% Efficiency.

The corsair 650 is excellent but depending on budget, this may be an alternative, w/ overvolt protection.

There is dozens of good psu's in that price range.

If you can afford it, get the better vid card, you will see the most bang for your buck right there.

Good luck, read the manual before building and learn where all your plug headers are, audio headers, all the little things that you will need to do, it's easy if you familiarize yourself with the motherboard and components.

Enjoy,

spct

cravin ... the psu you recommened for the build was 400W and had 1x6 pin connector
http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product...tent-_-text-_-
