The CXM450 is a great budget PSU, but for a little more you can get the seasonic focus gold which is light years better and has a 10 year warranty. The PSU is the most important component in your build and i think for the price difference the seasonic is definitely worth it

I would just get a 240gb ssd and either a 1tb or 2tb HD for data.

I dont like blower style GPU unless its absolutely necessary because of the case.

Also go with faster ram.. Its around the same price. :)

Alright, Version 3. I’m honestly quite disappointed in myself for not choosing faster RAM the previous time. But on the bright side, I found some with white lights (puns, lol) to hopefully match the new GPU.

Definitely better! :)
