Ok so this will be my first build EVER excited? You know I cant wait but I have no idea what power supply to chose.

Keep in mind that I am trying to stay cost efficiant

Also I am only buying from newegg so I wont be able to buy a power souce anywhere else

PLEASE GIVE ME YOUR IDEAS AND OPINIONS ON MY SYSTEM

IF SOMETHING IS AMISS OR WONT WORK PLEASE TELL ME I WOULD HATE TO GET ALL MY STUFF TO FIND OUT I SCREWED UP SOMEHOW

OK here is the system


COOLER MASTER Elite 330 RC-330-KKN1-GP Black SECC ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Retail


GIGABYTE GA-P35-DS3L LGA 775 Intel P35 ATX All Solid Capacitor Intel Motherboard - Retail

  GECUBE GC-XHD3850PG3-E3R Radeon HD 3850 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire Supported Video Card - Retail


Intel Core 2 Duo E4500 Allendale 2.2GHz LGA 775 65W Dual-Core Processor Model BX80557E4500 - Retail

G.SKILL 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model F2-6400CL5D-2GBNQ - Retail


Western Digital Caviar SE16 WD2500AAKS 250GB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive - OEM

 


ASUS 20X DVD±R DVD Burner with LightScribe Black SATA Model DRW-2014L1T - Retail

 

total price without power supply, mouse keyboard, and monitor is 596.92  pretty good price i think? So tell me what you think and what power supply I shoud buy. Is everything there?

Do i need another component to get wireless internet. This is stupid too but is there already USB plugs in the computer along with ports for monitor mouse and keyboard?

You could spend less, but for 110 you can get a really nice 610w unit made by PC Power & Cooling... they're top notch & very respected.

Seems good.  Great 12 volts.  Sorry, not much I can say.  If you browse the reviews I'm sure you can decide if it's reliable.  I did, and there's a few DOAs, but that isn't uncommon.  $90 free shipping, and a mail-in-rebate to make it even cheaper.  Anyone think it looks alright?

Hello

Not a bad PSU, but personally I'd spend the extra 20 for the 1 I linked... just my 2.

I'll personally would take PC Power & Cooling over OCZ any day, especially if it is just $20.

But since he is on a tight budget, the OCZ isn't a bad choice. It also comes with a nice $20 mail-in rebate. 

If you think you can’t do something, you’ll never be able to do it. No matter how easy it is.
