I wouldn't trust a PSU that comes with a case with all my expensive components. If you want to risk it, that's fine, it will probably work, but I recommend getting a better brand PSU.

What are you going to use this computer for? The new one isn't much faster.

Here's a better compilation of parts:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819115031
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813128059
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814127295
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817371006
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820211066

That's something like $350, add a case and other accessories and you'll have a nice PC.

It's a little faster, but the build I listed is MUCH faster. I missed your video card at first and I assumed you were going to be using integrated graphics...but now I see you have the 8600GT on there.

Wait a minute and I'll get up a full list of parts to show you.

Niceee build for under $500. Plus you have $50 worth of mail in rebates, so it's really only $450. The video card and processor both are much better than the ones you picked out. The motherboard you picked out is really crappy, and getting a cheap motherboard will cause problems in the long run. This build is well balanced, which is important.
