Oops! The 1333mhz ram was a mistake. Why the psu change?

For a little more, you can get an 80+ Gold Certified PSU. Good way to save up on those electricity bills? 450W is enough for this build. (Considering the 750 Ti's low power draw) If you're planning on upgrading down the line however, you may switch back to the previous 500W PSU.

Yeah, that was the plan. Hence why i switched from Logical Increments's 430w reccomendation.
