My System Specs


Another +1. I personally have no experience with OCZ PSU, but have heard the same thing over and over again...they are generally a decent enough PSU, but there are definitely higher quality PSU out there. Meaning if you already have it it should be fine, but if choosing new I would look elsewhere.

Also, I can first hand vouch for the GPU (at least at 1680x1050). Running everything I have tried so far great.

MOB, CPU and Ram should be great (would like to do that upgrade myself).

+1 for different PSU, OCZ has such terrible track record for their PSUs!

there rest looks good but id say this is a better deal for a GPU, cheaper yet MUCH more powerful!
