Solved

Any changes before I buy the important parts?

Tried coming on the forum earlier but post got buried fast. Anyways, I have bought the case and the monitor. All that is left is the innards and I want to make sure they all are good. Please check over it. Also if you guys see know of any good deals on ram, please tell me.

    50$ psu? at that price it might not be strong enough to handle my system. Why the switch from the gold to bronze. I wanted a modular psu.
  8. That PSU blows the Supernova out of the water.

    Gold and Bronze have nothing to do with performance.
  9. Plus its usually a $95 Psu But after MIR is $49.99 so id say thats a steal.
