Cheap and good. Psu no idea how that even got there it was just in the case didnt mention it would come with it or anything, so if u know anything about that random psu and if its good or bad lemme know XD. Second build first build takes 3 dumps on this one. I sold my first build to a buddy he really wanted to and this build i am also selling but i just wanted to see what i can build with a low budget

That is actually a 400W PSU. The 270x is recommended with a 500W PSU. However your CPU is low TDP so it might be fine if you don't overclock it. Any particular reason you went for so much RAM or an aftermarket cooler? The stock intel cooler is fairly good.

P.S. PCPP rates the build as 322W and your 12v has 372W. What's a bit worrying though is that you got 17+14 amp and the 270x needs a minimum of 24amps.

I'd buy a new PSU and try and sell this one. Or use it in a build with no discrete GPU.

Thanks for all the info guys, the cooler I had no idea why I took i just liked the way it looked I guess the stock looks so bleh, so I will grab another PSU I didn't feel too comfortable with this one.

You got it(The PSU) for free, so it's not much of a loss. :D Replacing it with a proper one will give you peace of mind and you could also use this in an office or htpc build, which does not have a discrete GPU.

Its 500w not 400w. It is just fine.

The fact that there's 500 written over it with big letters does not mean it will supply 500W continuous power. If you look better you'll see that that's 500W of peak power. So it can provide 500W for a few seconds before dying. It claims to only supply 400W of continuous stable power. Furthermore it states that it only provides 372W of power for the two 12v rails that it has. Which is still not a concern as his/her system should only pull around 350W worst case scenario(no overclocks).

What actually makes think that investing in a different Power Supply would be worth it is the fact that the 31amps that it has are spread over 2 rails.

Honestly as I see it, he should use it for a week or two, if all works well, that's great, if it cuts short, then yes for sure replace it. Like you said it is a bit worrying, but I think it will manage to supply his system.

His dual Core 3.6 ghz chip has hyperthreading, effectively acting like a quadcore.

What you need help with Budd if u have a budget like mine go with this exact build but I have an sad which is more expensive, you can still run Attila fairly well with an i3 since your GPU is much more important for gaming, if say u were going with a 290 or gtx 980 than a better CPU would be needed.

Is your heatsink fan on upside down? Isn't it just blowing air down into your case?

I'm pretty sure it'd be a better idea to get the i5 core, because the i3 does not meet all of the newer game's requirements. ie: The Division

Tbh I don't play many demanding game s, mostly mobas like dota,strife,lol. But as I said I would have loved an amd CPU but the dude I'm selling it to wouldn't go with amd like he would not have payed a penny if I dropped one in there
