I like the build a lot! Just two things. How is the case going for you (I've never heard anything good about Raidmax cases so I was just curious). Second... REPLACE THE PSU! The fact that it's not even 80+ efficient is bad and getting this at such a cheap price is questionable.

I agree with that. Here's my view, usually the items that are more expensive will be better in the long run and will prevent you from losing your system when the PSU goes down. Spending another $10-$20 on a PSU that is reputable is going to make a difference.

I like the case it was a little tricky with the cables but it worked out. it does everything I need it to do. how ever it only comes with one fan so I had to add those and the one in the front makes it were I can't put my hard drive all the way in. but for $25 and this being my first build and on a budget im happy with it. as for my PSU it cost $50 but had a mail in rebate which brought the price down I will probabaly replace it in the near future when I get more money. with that said what would you recommend?

I would reccomend a PSU from: Seasonic, Corsair, Fractal Design, XFX, Be Quiet!, or Cooler Master.

Solid build however I'm not sure on you're PSU? Unknown PSU's tend to be a time bomb, you might want to replace it before you need to replace everything.

Cheap PSUs use cheap components which a) aren't as efficient and b) have a tendency to malfunction with a possibility of breaking other components. A cheap power supply will often not produce near its given wattage so you would be better off with a decent 500w-600w than a cheap 750w. Don't go cheap on the PSU. I recommend be quiet as they are very well made, reasonable priced and quieter than most PSUs.

Good build, but I would have gone for a slightly more powerful graphics card, perhaps the 280x. Also, i agree with louistaylor147 - REPLACE THE PSU.

Replace PSU ASAP. Ultra LSP is tier 5. Not worth risking your pc.. Buy a cheaper Corsair if you want to save money. A 500W from a decent company would be much better.

Not bad... but that PSU should be replaced when you are able to. No idea how long that will last, but at the very least you aren't straining it too hard.

Hardly a description. Some of the worst pics I've seen (people need to stop using Nokia cellphones to take pics).

Update pics and description. Please. Then you get my +1.

Besides everyone complaining about the PSU, me included, why not buy a aftermarket heatsink for your CPU? you spent money on lighting you could have used that for a heatsink.

I thought about getting the CM hyper 212 evo but it wouldnt fit in my case. The heatsink it came with will work for the time being I was tired of waiting so I just went ahead and put it together I might get one later on when I have some more money and as for the lights they cost me $10.

thanks for the feedback
