Welcome to the site!

Does the case come with the PSU? If so, what brand is it? You may consider getting an after market PSU as 'generally' the ones that come with cases are garbage... depends on the manufacturer though.

Nice selection otherwise, what do you plan to do with the machine?

I am now getting a case and 460Watt CoolerMaster PSU separate because I guess I kinda knew that built in PSUs sucked but I was being cheap. With my new PSU the price increase was only about $30 so It wasn't a big deal. As for what I will be using it for...
Mostly games of all kinds, defiantly nothing as demanding as Crysis, but Oblivion, League of legends, Starcraft 2, etc. I don't mind playing on Med to low settings as ling as I can play i'm pretty much happy
