missing psu and the 80mm fan is unnecessary. Also you should get an aftermarket heatsink for the cpu and if you can, get 2x4gb of ram in total of 8gb but 4 gb is fine as well, just my preference

I meant to put 8gb, my bad. And I haven't done all the calculations yet to figure out a power supply yet, but I tested a rig with the same specs and I topped Skyrim on Ultra graphics and stayed steady at 60FPS which is just insane!

a 600 watt psu is more than enough unless you decide to crossfire/SLI then i would suggest an 850 watt psu. I highly recommend corsair, great products
