For a psu, go for ultra xconnect. They're really good. Either that or pc power and cooling turbo cool. Something around the 500W should be good. Anything less for that pc and you will harm the psu. Look's good. Get the geil ram. For a case, go for something that has a removable mobo tray. Trust me... life's easier that way. For a keyboard/mouse, anything logitech is nice. I would get speakers, but if you need to be quiet, the best ones are bose, but logitech makes some ok ones. Sony is also good. Try monarch for parts. Newegg is usually the best, but sometimes monarch has some cheap good stuff too, so yeah. Hope it alls works nicely! for the link to monarch, btw,

yeah...
