The PSU is crap. What is this build for?

I would get faster RAM and a better PSU. At least 500W

Also, save a few bucks by skipping the CD reader. Unless you have games or actually use it more than 1ce a month, then there's no need for it.

to build on this just get a USB CD drive. Just for when you need it.
