Quiet, cool, and powerful. I love it.

I had to snag a molex to six pin for the 780 though.

Careful with that small a PSU for this build. If your GTX 780 happens to pull full load even for a few milliseconds, it could trigger the PSU to go into overcurrent or overvoltage protection and shut down the system.

i would suggest getting at least a 500w since the wattage is almost at max for your build

Id suggest getting a better PSU and a better monitor or youre just wasting money. Sorry but this is a very lopsided build. Could have gotten a GTX 770 and a much better Motherboard, PSU and a 4670k with a nice cooler then this.

I guess if you like this its good but it almost seems like you could only afford the GTX 780 and cheeped out on everything else.

I won't be upgrading this computer for a long time. I wanted power, with low power consumption, portability and low noise. So far, I have everything I've wanted. I'm not really an enthusiast, per-say where the end all is nothing but performance. I have a 1080p 47 inch TV that I connect the PC to for long gaming sessions.

Having a PSU with low watts doesn't make your PC use less power. In fact, if all you change was the PSU on this build, it would still use up the same amount of watts that it used before. And since you're using a lower end PSU, I would get one with a higher watt output, or get a higher quality PSU.

Have you tried overclocking the graphics card ?

Not bad for the price, though I would have gotten an EVGA or Gigabyte card.

What if I told you EVGA and Gigabyte both produce Geforce GTX 780 GPUs?

what. of course they do. they do so because their custom cards are factory overclocked and have better cooling, so people will buy them, and not PNY.

I do not want to overclock. It is why I went with a H87 board and a locked CPU. I have no brand preference for parts. Also, the PSU was recommended by http://www.extreme.outervision.com/psucalculatorlite.jsp I'll let you know if something goes wrong. The machine is very quiet, temps are normal, and I've been gaming for hours with no issues.
