The first one is obviously cheaper and would work. What I don't like about it is that it only has one PCIe power connector, and a GTX 460 requires two, therefore you need a Molex-to-PCIe adapter. While that's not an issue electrically speaking, I... well, I just don't like those personally, just for neatness/esthetics reasons. If that doesn't bother you, you'll be happy with that PSU.
Unfortunately the Antec Neo Eco 520 is out of stock so there aren't a lot of options with good prices.

I believe the Best Buy near my house has the Antec 520W. I will have to check it out and maybe check if Amazon has it or the other places I was looking at PSU's. BTW Thanks a ton for your help in making this system. I gave you rep. ^^

You're welcome!
The Antec Neo Eco 520 would be the best value these days, even though you don't really need that much power.

About how much power do you think I need? Is there another brand that would have something with the same value?

For the same price, no. But like I said, your system would run fine on a good 400W unit such as the Antec Neo Eco 400W. It's just hard to find a good unit in that wattage range for a good price.

Sounds good. I will see if I can locate an Antec Eco Neo 520c otherwise I'll go ahead and grab the 400W. Aside from that are all the current components on page one good to go? I will probably be ordering in 2-3 days so I just want to make sure everything is compatible and is a good part.

Everything looks compatible.
One last thing -- if you have to get a new DVD burner for whatever reason... $40 is a ridiculous price. They cost around $20.

I think I was just randomly saying a number. I am just going to be giving my parents my current Dell XPS 720 and I'll just take the old CD/DVD-ROMS from their current computer and use those. The only reason I would use it is to install the OS so aside from that I wouldn't need it. All my music and games are downloaded online so I may just install the OS and remove it. Or just keep it in case I need one for some strange reason.

Once I get the computer assembled and online I will post another thread on it with some pictures and I will let you know so you can take a look at what you helped create.
